The Morality of Profit

One of this blog's most frequent subjects is the moral case for free trade (i.e., voluntary, mutually beneficial commercial exchange across national borders) and the immorality of efforts to thwart such exchanges through protectionism or market-distorting subsidies.  From the Atlas Network's Tom Palmer comes a great new video on the morality of profit that touches on some of the themes raised here.

I understand that the Atlas Network will be making more videos on the inherent morality of the free market. Hopefully, they'll do one specifically on free trade and protectionism.

(Assuming, of course, that the world doesn't end tonight.)
