Interview with Gary Becker (Part Five)


Today on Uncommon Knowledge: Gary Becker’s optimistic outlook on the future.

“…what I trust with the American people is that they have always had a lot of common sense, and yes they can’t follow all the technical arguments from the economists. They can give it a common sense touch…. And I think most Americans believe and I think they are correct in that belief, that the private sector has shown that it performs better overall, not 100 percent, but…a lot better overall than the public sector does.”
