John Stossel on Charity Begins With Wealth Creation


Proof of the superiority of private over government efforts is everywhere, says John Stossel. Catholic charities do a better job educating children than government—for much less money. New York City's government left Central Park a dangerous mess. Then a private charity rescued it. But while charity is important, let's not overlook something more important: Before we can help anyone, we first need something to give. Production precedes donation. Advocates of big government forget this.
