Mitt Romney on Arthur and “The Road to Freedom”

In today’s speech at the Clinton Global Initiative, Mitt Romney stated “By the way, perhaps the best example of the good that free enterprise can do is by looking at the example of the developed world itself. My friend Arthur Brooks at the American Enterprise Institute, he’s pointed out that before the year 1800, living standards in the West were appalling… But starting in 1800, the West began two centuries of free enterprise and trade… As the most prosperous nation in history, it’s our duty to keep the engine o prosperity running. To open markets across the globe and to spread prosperity to all corners of the earth. We should do it, because it’s the right moral course.”
