What's it about?

Fiscal conservatism is built on the foundations of capitalism, individualism, a limited government, and laissez-faire economics. What this means is that conservative economists champion free markets, privatization, tax cuts, and reduced government spending. These Blinks will introduce you to the ideas and criticisms of past and present conservative economists. You'll learn why conservatives oppose welfarism, why zero-sum economic outcomes are a fallacy, and how economic and political freedom depend on a decentralized government.
