Why We Shouldn’t Give Up (aka It’s a Wonderful Institute)

July 14, 2009

The Competitive Enterprise Institute, one of the US’s finest libertarian think tanks, and defiantly the coolest, put together this little clip for their 25th Anniversary Dinner earlier this year, which I had the great fortune of being able to attend.

A spoof on It’s A Wonderful Life, I think it’s a rather cute and amusing look at what would happen if we all just gave up – and why we should bother. Not exactly a professional production, but it is a nice lighthearted look at why free market institutions matter – and why we shouldn’t give up!

You can support similarly great institutions in Australia by donating to the Centre for Independent Studies and the Institute for Public Affairs.
