"School choice, it seems, should be a no-brainer. Why not give families vouchers, allowing them to make free choices for their children’s education? There’s a reason increasing numbers of inner-city activists in places like Chicago and Washington, D.C., are fighting for charter schools and voucher programs. They know choice would be better for their kids. They know the government has failed them."

The Morality of Capitalism
Posted by Todd Davidson on Friday, April 20, 2012
Capitalism is the most amazing vehicle for social cooperation that has ever existed. And that’s the story we need to tell… to show that it’s about creating shared value, not for the few, but for everyone.

~John Mackey, Co-Founder of Whole Foods Market

Cooperation is as much a part of capitalism as competition.  Both are essential elements of the simple system of natural liberty, and most of us spend far more of our time cooperating with partners, coworkers, suppliers, and customers than we do competing.

~David Boaz Executive Vice-President of the Cato Institute

~Adam Smith
