Freedom, Free Enterprise and the Connection to Capitalism

“Adam Smith, the author of “Wealth of the Nations” and the man many consider to be free enterprise’s founding father saw, “business as personal and human because it was animated by a ‘moral sentiment.’

In fact, Smith was an 18th century moral philosopher, and he never used the word ‘capitalism.’ Instead, he talked about a system of natural liberties, and trade animated by moral consciousness. By doing so, Smith laid a moral foundation for capitalism.

He understood that a company, as a system, would succeed based on its ability to scale and systematize liberty- the right kind of liberty. That means not just Freedom From tyranny, but the Freedom To innovate, to fail with the fear of disproportionate consequences…

This is what a free enterprise is all about. And free enterprise is what capitalism, as it was originally intended is all about. Yes, capitalism still is our best hope for a brighter future.”

    I am not saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added a title that grabbed folk’s
    attention? I mean Freedom, Free Enterprise and the Connection to Capitalism – The Keating
    Center is kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write article titles to grab
    people to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about

    bit more interesting.
