Series Description

Host Ben Wattenberg looks at the achievements of the free enterprise system in America. Series release date: 1977

Program Description

Although it begins with quotes from the likes of Morris Udall, Fred Harris and Ralph Nader (none of whom is a fan of corporate America), Wattenberg jumps to the defense of the biggies: “The critics seem to forget on simple fact. For all its flaws, the American corporation has provided more necessities and more luxuries than any system the world has ever seen.”
