Yours and mine : the lesson of 1623( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Looking to win the affection of a Plimoth Plantation enactor, a man takes a job enacting as her husband, and in the process learns that much of what we learned in school about the Pilgrims is not necessarily so. For example, did you know that the Pilgrims wore colorful clothing, and that many came to American soil in search of profit, not religious freedom? The enactor also learns that while the Plimoth Colony originally followed practices of property sharing, it became evident quickly that this system had major flaws. By 1623, the Pilgrims decided that private property ownership allowed for a much more efficient and productive workforce, yielding plentiful crop harvests. This laid the foundation for today's practices of private property rights. Includes previews of other programs by Izzit
Freedom and prosperity( Visual )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Milton Friedman examines how Hungary and Czechoslovakia are rebuilding their collapsed economies. He argues that Eastern European countries must accept that governments create no wealth and that free, private markets are the only road to prosperity. He says that attempts to find a "third way" between socialism and free markets are doomed from the start. He examines how small businesses in Eastern Europe struggle to survive against the remains of extensive government control. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman talks further about government and the economy with Gary Becker of the University of Chicago and Samuel Bowles of the University of Massachusetts. They disagree about the results of economic controls in countries around the world, with Friedman defending his thesis that the best government role is the smallest one
The failure of socialism( Visual )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedman argues that socialism is based on the premise that people are better off when experts guide their lives. He uses U.S. public education as a case study of the failure of socialism. He endorses a voucher system to give choice and control back to parents because giving individuals the power to choose will lead to better results than centrally planned activity. In a discussion following the documentary, Friedman explores the subject further with Gordon Tullock of the University of Arizona and Henry Levin of Stanford University. They debate what standards government should set for education, the role of public and private schools, the special needs of underprivileged children, and how much control parents should have over the schools
