Liberty and Economics

I want to share this with you. I think that this video put together by the Ludwig von Mises Institute shows the importance and connection between liberty and economics. In the world of ideas it is important to convey people that free markets is the only way to achieve economic growth. Socialism is meant to fail. Socialism cannot use economic calculation as a tool to benefit society. Socialism denies freedom and kills society.
