Thomas Barnett

Pour faire suite au vidéo de Milton Freidman sur la liberté politique et la liberté économique, voici une citation de Thomas Barnett, tiré de son livre "The Pentagon's New Map: War and Peace in the Twenty-First Century":

"A Chinese friend of mine who had been active in the democracy movement explained…’Before Tianenmen, we believed that freedom is 90 percent political and 10 percent economic. A few years later, we came to realize that freedom is 90 percent economic and 10 percent political.’ You may find my friend's change of heart troublesome, but think about your own daily life and then try to tell me that second formula isn't a better description of how things really work for the vast majority of Americans."
