Good Intentions with Walter E. Williams

June 13, 2011 J

By: R.J. Moeller

Dr. Walter E. Williams is a professor of economics at George Mason University and happens to be a black libertarian. He is probably most well known from the numerous times he has filled in for Rush Limbaugh on his nationally syndicated talk show, but for thirty years now, Dr. Williams has been speaking and writing publicly on the issue of poverty and its causes.

In 1985, as part of Dr. Milton Friedman’s “Free to Choose” franchise, Williams put together this extremely important and insightful documentary on the “Good Intentions” of poverty relief run by the federal government.

This is the stuff you don’t learn in public schools. We need to have a heart for the poor, but if don’t have a head for them as well, more harm than good befalls them.

PLEASE watch this video (all three parts)!
