The Ultimate Resource

In the last 25 years, millions of people – 400 million in China alone – have climbed out of extreme poverty (living on less than $1.00 per day). Based on the economic and philosophic principles of Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman and economist Julian Simon, The Ultimate Resource profiles individuals and families whose entrepreneurial spirits have flourished within free, competitive economies. The program also documents some of the surprising and innovative free market and free trade initiatives improving lives in Ghana, Estonia, China, Peru and Bangladesh. The film includes commentary from the field's most innovative thinkers, including economist Hernando de Soto, author Dr. James Tooley, scholar Johan Norberg and 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus.
