Today on Culture Shift, Barry Farah talks about economic freedom in light of a recent development related to short selling. Short selling is for sophisticated investors who are aware of the exorbitant risks. But, even in this risky territory, long-term, a free market is best for the everyday person. The Bible speaks to economics extensively. Jesus talked about money more than any other topic except the kingdom of heaven. Extensive empirical evidence points to economic freedom improving the lives of every community it touches. There are four components to freedom economics. When one or more is crimped by government overreach it adversely impacts everyone. When economic freedom prevails it serves other freedom rights.
