Introduction to Northwood Idea
Learning Goal: I’m working on a philosophy discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
One of the most hotly contested topics–today and “yesterday”–regards freedom and prosperity. Does freedom make prosperity possible for all or is it the cause of the inequalities and inadequacies we see in the world, especially in the most marginalized classes and peoples? Is prosperity a friend to freedom, or does it necessarily result in the kinds of injustices we see in different places around the world today?
Drawing upon Volume 3 of the Free to Choose video series, “Freedom and Prosperity,” your studies and understanding and experience address the above topic/questions.
