Economic Liberty

Economic Liberty

Throughout most of American history, it was almost taken for granted that citizens had a constitutionally-protected right to earn a living by applying their skills in a useful business that presents no threat to the public health, safety, or welfare. ¬†Unfortunately, both courts and legislatures have lost sight of this fundamental right, allowing for the creation of laws that prohibit ordinary citizens from earning a living unless they first get permission from government agencies which, in many cases, are run by the very people who would be the newcomers’ business competition. ¬†The Freedom Center of Missouri is fighting in the courts of law and the court of public opinion to protect Missourians’ right to earn a living in harmless professions.
