The American Enterprise Institute is serious about reinvigorating America’s spirit of free enterprise. Big ambitions require big promotions, which is why AEI is proud to announce a $50,000 video contest, “Make the Moral Case for Free Enterprise,” to unleash the market’s creative potential. We’re calling on everyone who loves America’s system of free enterprise to submit a short video (under two minutes) that sets forth its worth — not on the basis of political ideology or economic efficiency but on the basis of simple moral truths, namely:
• Free enterprise promotes earned success, which is the substance of lasting happiness.
• Free enterprise promotes real fairness, based on merit and hard work.
• Free enterprise does the most good for the most vulnerable by supplying both ample charity and unmatched opportunity.
Note: VidOpp does not endorse the political views of The American Enterprise Institute, we just find and post video contests.
