It’s school choice week. Many kids don’t have choice in where they go to school. The school choice movement is trying to give them that opportunity

Of course, having choice when it comes to what kids learn is important too. Many schools teach kids that capitalism hurts people. So John Stossel started a charity called Stossel in the Classroom. It offers teachers free videos that introduce kids to free market ideas. Students rarely hear about these ideas in school. Graduates from Queens Technical High School in New York City who watched the videos while they were in high school explained that the videos were different from what they were used to. "They really opened up my mind to think differently" said Xiomara Inga. Antonio Parada added the videos "changed the way that I viewed the world." Gabriel Miller was so inspired by videos about the founding of America, he decided to enlist in the National Guard. He explains, "We are taught that this country is horrible." But after watching the videos, "I felt ashamed for what I initially believed…[so] I wanted to give back." Diony Perez was inspired to open his own business, an auto leasing company called Familia Motor Group. "The Stossel videos helped me become more of an entrepreneur," Diony said. Other students explained that certain videos like "The Unintended Consequences …" and "The Evil Rich" stuck with them. Johann Astudillo learned about unintended consequences from a video about minimum wage, "minimum wage increase priced out young people from getting jobs into the market." Victoria Guerrero learned that most rich people get rich by providing some benefit to society. "If it wasn't for Steve Jobs ... our life would not be as easy as it is today." Stossel says he is glad his charity helps students understand free market ideas.

Here’s why this argument is so hilarious: the U.S. government wastes our money all the time, every single day. In fact, here are just a few things they spend our money on in just the past several years.

Stossel: Government Shutdown Shows Private Is Better

ReasonTV

Published on Jan 15, 2019

Shutdown teaches us that much of government is NOT essential.

The government shutdown is now longer than any in history. The media say it's a "crisis." The Washington Post talks talks about the "shutdown's pain." The New York Times says it's "just too much." John Stossel says: wait a second. Looking around America, everything seems pretty normal. Life goes on. Kids still play and learn, adults still work, stock prices have actually increased during the shutdown. It's hardly the end of the world. But he adds that the government shutdown is still a problem. For some 400,000 furloughed workers, and another 400,000 working without pay for now, the shutdown hurts. But while New York Times columnist Paul Krugman calls it "Trump's big libertarian experiment," Stossel notes that the shutdown is not libertarian. Government's rules are still in effect, and soon workers will be paid for not working. Stossel calls that an un-libertarian experiment. Libertarians want to permanently cut government, not shut down parts for a few weeks and then pay the workers anyway. There are lessons to be learned from the shutdown. Government stopped collecting trash and cleaning up public parks in DC, so volunteers stepped in to pick up trash. Without so much government, Stossel says, private citizens will often step in to do things government workers used to do. Stossel says the shutdown highlights where some government waste can be trimmed. Farmers don't get their "support" checks during the shutdown. But Stossel asks–why should they get checks at all? While the big subsidies go to grain and corn farmers, most fruit and vegetable farmers get no subsidies. They survive without them. Other farmers could, too. FDA inspection of food has stopped during the shutdown. Paul Krugman asks smugly, "does contaminated food smell like freedom?" But Stossel notes that the main reason food is safe isn't government. It's competition. Companies worry about their reputation. Just ask Chipotle, Stossel says. Their stock fell by more than half after food poisoning incidents at their stores; since then they have instituted far more food inspection than government requires. Most food producers already do that. Beef carcasses undergo hot steam rinses, and microbiological testing goes well beyond what government requires. Market competition protects us better than rule-bound government bureaucrats. Stossel says most of government could be done away with or privatized. Even airport security. TSA workers aren't getting paid. But some airports (San Francisco, Orlando, Kansas City, and 19 others) privatized security. Those workers are still getting paid. They also do a better job. A leaked TSA study found that the private security agents, in test runs, are much better at detecting weapons in bags than the TSA. A congressional report found they are also faster at processing passengers. Stossel says that while politicians bicker about $5.7 billion in wall funding (much less than 1 percent of the federal budget) what they really should worry about is that America's debt will soon reach $22 trillion because government squanders money on useless things. At union protests, government workers say "We are essential!" But based on the above, Stossel says: Give us a break.

The immigrants who settled in this country were met with few government programs and a truly free market. As they thrived in this land of opportunity, economic and personal freedoms were slowly legislated away, leaving us to wonder if we are still truly living within a free economy. If economic decisions are not purely based on results, then what is the alternative?

Milton Friedman Schools Young Idealist (Stanford)

In this classic footage from a Stanford University lecture, Professor Friedman takes Q&A after his talk "The Role of Government in a Free Society." In this exchange, a young man describes poverty as a "market failure." Friedman, in characteristic fashion, shows otherwise. Though this was recorded around 1979, the exchange is timeless.

The U.S. Just Pledged $11B In ‘Aid’ to Mexico & Central America -- But Can’t Fund a Border Wall?

While coming up with $5 billion out of a $3 trillion budget to put toward a border wall and secure our own county is apparently too much to ask, the federal government did just manage to scrounge up a whopping $10.6 billion – most of it via American taxpayer dollars – to fork over to Central America and Mexico in foreign aid and “investment," all to try and keep people from coming here.

Do Kids Need School? Inside the 'Unschooling' Movement

"School is a place where children go to learn to be stupid," said author and educator John Holt. Watch the video above to learn more about the history of the unschooling movement, and to meet some of its modern practitioners, like the Rios-Sherman family. We also visited a school in Houston, Texas, that operates on the "Sudbury model," in which the kids decide how to spend their time, and vote on issues such as how to handle disciplinary matters and the allocation of school funds. Produced by Zach Weissmueller. Camera by Jim Epstein, Mark McDaniel, Brynmore Williams, and Weissmueller.
