FREEDOM FIRST

By Donald R. Chambers, PhD

 

Freedom First is a collection of 118 nonfiction readings focused on simplified stories that convey practical economic insights.  Most of the readings explain how free markets drive economic prosperity and how market prices communicate signals to coordinate cooperation. The book clarifies the concept of natural rights and the role of natural rights and other institutions in promoting freedom and prosperity. Some of the readings discuss the causes of economic growth and evaluate the role of wealth in meeting the goals of the participants of economies.

The book examines the core beliefs and goals of the progressive left and defends traditional American values regarding economics. The book’s many varied discussions focus on applying evidence and logic to ascertain the relative merits of economic freedom and authoritarianism.

A moderate number of the readings have a “college professor memoir” aspect that includes recollection of classroom discussions or activities. The readings are independent of each other and therefore can be read in any order and at any pace.

"In his new book, Freedom First, Professor Chambers, says America has become the most impacting, important, and economically sound nation in the history of the world for specific reasons. Due to equality, freedom, free market and religious tolerance America grew from 13 small colonies clinging to the Atlantic seashore to become the world power. But today we are destroying those ideals that have made us great. The book relates America’s journey, starting from our inception to present day. Chambers gives pragmatic answers to today’s troubling trends. More importantly, he gives us hope."
-Durhl Caussey, The Focus Daily News

"Americans take much for granted. We assume the freedoms we enjoy daily without much cognizance that most of the rest of the world lacks them. Donald Chambers book "Freedom First" contains an amazing collection of essays which remind us that those liberties remain the key to peace and prosperity."
- Lars Larson, Host of the nationally-syndicated radio talk show "The Lars Larson Show"
