In The Road to Freedom, American Enterprise Institute president Arthur C. Brooks shows that this trend cannot be reversed through materialistic appeals about the economic efficiency of capitalism. Rather, free enterprise requires a moral defense rooted in the ideals of earned success, equality of opportunity, charity, and basic fairness. Brooks builds this defense and demonstrates how it is central to understanding the major policy issues facing America today.
The future of the free enterprise system has become a central issue in our national debate, and Brooks offers a practical manual for defending it over the coming years. Both a moral manifesto and a prescription for concrete policy changes, The Road to Freedom will help Americans in all walks of life translate the philosophy of free enterprise into action, to restore both our nation's greatness and our own well-being in the process.

Good analysis but no chance of implementation
The body of the book analyses where we are in to government spending. Most of what is presented is quite reasonable.
The policy prescriptions are valid but have no chance of implementation. Most citizens want stuff that others pay for and they are always looking for more. See Bernie Sanders. The idea that Congress is going to pass restrictions on current benefits is folly.
We are going to have to wait for the economic collapse before current government benefits are addressed.
The narrator didn't help. The words were read but the thoughts did not flow very well.
