It is human nature to take for granted those elements of our lives that are most critically important. These would include our health, our family, and our freedoms. Unfortunately, by the time we figure out how important they are, it’s often too late. As business and community leaders, we are asked to support many worthy causes, especially those related to finding cures for diseases. I believe the greatest “disease” is the failure of America and its youth to understand the enormous benefits derived from our personal, political, and economic freedoms. Our economy performs better when its participants are well-informed. We make decisions that enhance resource allocation, and thus contribute to rising efficiency, productivity, and living standards. It generates the resources that can find the cures for diseases. The promise for the future of our economic freedoms is education!
