As part of their Bastiat Project, our friends at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation have a great new video, “The Great Prosperity Machine,” about the benefits of free trade. Check it out:

Narrated by Tom Palmer, the video dispels the myth that trade hurts consumers, showing how trade is like a machine that enables people to convert their goods and services into things they want and cannot produce on their own. As Tom says, “free trade creates mutual benefits.” It’s tough to argue with that!
