Individual Freedom and Free Markets
As one of the most successful investors of modern times, Sir John Templeton, the founder of Templeton Press, understood the enormous contribution that free markets and entrepreneurship could make to material improvement.
For him, wealth creation was no accident of history, whether for the nations of the West or for the billions of people struggling for basic necessities in the developing world. Human societies could experience general prosperity, he believed, only when they recognized and established broad principles of freedom, competition, and personal responsibility. For him, individual freedom was the indispensable foundation of economic, social, and spiritual progress.
Our Individual Freedom and Free Markets publishing list focuses on a diverse range of topics including financial literacy, investments, thrift, global development, political philosophy, and current events.
