Enterprise And Jobs

It is the spirit of entrepreneurship and the freedom to create wealth, free from government interference, that allows individuals and, by extension, the country, to prosper. There is no inherent "right" to a job. Jobs are contracts between individuals to trade money and benefits for services. Governments do not ”create” jobs and should not pretend to. The best employment opportunities are available in the freest and, thus, the most productive economies. The following archived content illustrates key issues at stake in enterprise and jobs.

Indeed, that is the principle of justice.
