Fairest of Them All: Finding Real Economic Justice

Ad Feedback

On the campaign trail, President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney have laid out very different economic philosophies.

Romney's idea is to cut tax rates to grow the economy.

"The job of the government as it relates to the economy is to make America the most attractive place in the world for entrepreneurs, and innovators, investors, job creators," Romney told supporters in June.

"I want America to be home to the best job-creating machine the world knows," he said.

The lynchpin of the president's economic vision is to make the wealthiest of Americans pay their fair share in taxes.

"I believe that this country succeeds when everyone gets a fair shot, when everyone does their fair share, and when everyone plays by the same rules," Obama said during a speech in Osawatomie, Kan., last December.

But what constitutes "fairness" when it comes to the economy? Does it mean demanding that the wealthiest Americans pay more? Does it mean a government that takes from the rich and gives to the poor?

In his new book, Who's The Fairest of Them All?, author Stephen Moore answers those questions with a strong defense of the free market system as the path to success and achievement.

"Fairness is a good principle but should not be put ahead of growth," Moore told The Daily Caller. "There's nothing fair about making everyone poor."

Moore, who's also a senior economics writer for the Wall Street Journal, will address topics like wealth redistribution and his vision of economic justice on "The 700 Club," Oct. 15. Check your local listings or CBNNews.com after 10 a.m. ET Thursday for the interview.
