I gave this talk at the Heritage Foundation on the opportunity the bailouts provide: restoking "fusionism," or the kinship between small-town, agrarian conservatism steeped in tradition on the one hand, and free markets on the other hand.
In short, big government, not free markets, yield Britney Spears and Wal-Mart. Please watch my talk. I begin at about 12 minutes.
The event was sponsored by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute through its Culture of Enterprise initiative.
