The Ultimate Resource

From Free To Choose Media, the same group that produced the "Power of Choice: The Life and Ideas of Milton Friedman," comes a new doccumentary program titled "The Ultimate Resource: Free Markets - People Making Their Own Decisions," inspired by the work of economist Julian Simon and his book "The Ultimate Resource." From the press release:

Free Market incentives are spectacularly changing lives over much of the world. In the last 25 years, hundreds of millions of people-- 400 million in China alone-- have climbed out of the dire poverty of living on less than $1 per day. It is the largest movement out of poverty in human history.

This documentary is the story of what can happen when ordinary people around the world are given the tools to help themselves. "The Ultimate Resource" is people-- skilled, spirited and hopeful people, who are using their wills and imaginations for their own benefit, and, inevitably, they will benefit the rest of the world, as well.

Watch a 3-minute preview here on YouTube. The full documentary premiers tomorrow night, Tuesday, April 24, at 10:00 P.M. EST on HDNet.
