Interview with John Stossel by Carlisle Johnson

New Media  | 14 de enero de 2008  | Vistas: 2792

John Stossel recently visited Universidad Francisco Marroquín to receive an honorary doctorate degree and to give a conference about his book Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity. In his interview with Carlisle Johnson, he talks about the implications of being a libertarian in a mainly liberal news media. In this discussion on several topics including organ transplants, child adoption, foreign aid, and online gambling, Stossel illustrates the negative effects of government intervention on economic development and prosperity. Stossel is well known for debunking many myths, including those related to the Kyoto Protocol and government safety regulations.
