Encouraging the most talented among us (a symposium)

Recently, our colleagues at the free market Center of the American Experiment, based in Minnesota, hosted a symposium on the topic of “How Can We Better Encourage and
Reinforce the Most Entrepreneurial and Talented Among Us?” I participated in this and my response, along with those of others — including Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform, and other free market advocates — and that document is available here.

The fact is that, while much time and attention are (justifiably) focused on helping out those who need the most help, not much discussion occurs on the topic of how we all benefit from the efforts and innovations of the most talented among us.
