Entrepreneurs Fight: Free Enterprise or Social Democracy

Arthur Brooks talks with Jon Stewart about the role of entrepreneurs in America. The two debate whether centralist planning in government takes away from entrepreneurial efforts. But the question I have at the end of this is, “Is this really a battle? Are the “forces” of social democracy really that strong?” I can’t think of many people I talk to pro-reform or otherwise who don’t respect entrepreneurs. Obama’s Race to the Top initiative is a very strong message to entrepreneurs to get out there and create. Brooks’ argument seems vague.
