New Prager University Video: The President Who Shrank Government

New from Prager University:

In terms of reducing the size of the Federal government, which 20th century President most advanced the cause? Most people today would probably answer, "Ronald Reagan." Well, they would be wrong. In fact, it was a little-known President...one with a very "cool" name.

Calvin Coolidge was the single most effective politician in 20th century America at shrinking government and enlarging liberty and thus prosperity. Watch our newest free 5-minute video course to find out how he did it. With his famous Coolidgism, "“It is much more important to kill bad bills than to pass good ones," Silent Cal was courageous, refusing in most instances to give handouts and subsidies, and rightly trusting that people left to their own devices were the best guarantors of wealth creation.
