About this video
Friedrich A. Hayek believed the concept of social justice simply reflected what legislators and others believed was the “right” distribution of income. He argued that basic justice means respect for property rights, agreement to honor contracts, and giving each person his or her due. This video examines how central planning policies, large bureaucracies, and taxes affect development in Guatemala and other third world countries.
