Hayek and the Free Market [electronic resource]

According to conventional wisdom, the 2008 financial crisis happened because markets were not regulated enough. But what if the opposite is true? What if excessive government meddling in business caused the crash? To better understand that avenue of thought, it's necessary to study the work of a classical liberal thinker whose reputation continues to grow, even in a post-crisis world that seems to place a premium on Keynesian solutions. Shot in London, Vienna, and across the U.S., this program looks at the extraordinary life and influence of the radical free-market economist Friedrich Hayek.

Free Markets, Free Choice [electronic resource]

In a market economy, consumers have a wide choice of goods. This causes business competition that results in higher-quality goods at competitive prices-the basic principle behind supply-and-demand economics. The marketplace is trusted to answer the questions: What? How? And for whom? This is unlike centrally planned economies where the government determines the answers. In Russia, the IMF encourages these principles as the economy transitions into the early stages of a free market. Russia's conversion includes shifting from defense supplies to consumer goods and reforming work habits and credit cooperatives at the bottom level. Other issues, such as the role of the government in protecting those who cannot participate, like the very young and the elderly, are examined.
