The size and scope of government has become one of the most contested issues in American politics. What is government’s proper role? Should it focus on protecting individual rights and free markets? Or on promoting equality and solving society’s problems?

Presented by Demos, The Ayn Rand Center, and the Town Hall Center for Civic Life. Series media sponsorship provided by PubliCola.
