• • National Public Radio quotes ARI's Onkar Ghate
Capitalism |Individual Rights |Onkar Ghate |Objectivist author | Contra the setup of the story, “big vs. small government” is not the best way to frame the debate. The real issue is “the proper role of government,” a question on which ARI differs from both conservatives and liberals. We are in favor of proper government functions like the police force, a function which in a laissez-faire society would not be reduced. But we would entirely eliminate improper functions, like wealth redistribution programs and regulations that burden the innocent.
