Defending the Free Market:
The Moral Case for a Free Economy.
Father Robert Sirico is the founder of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty. In his popular book, Defending the Free Market: The Moral Case for a Free Economy, Rev. Sirico shows how a free economy is not only the best way to meet society's material needs but also the surest protection of human dignity against government encroachment.
Animated by a strong sense of social justice, he began a well-intentioned but ill-conceived career in leftist activism until a serious grappling with the principles of economics (and reality) led him to reevaluate his commitments, and discover the moral foundation of a flourishing society.
