1828 is a liberal opinion website founded to promote capitalism and freedom.
With the recent resurgence of socialist ideas, especially among the young, 1828 works to encourage the alternative: political and economic freedom.
We believe that all our lives have been positively changed by the spread of free-market capitalism. Whether it’s the vast technological changes we have enjoyed, the life-changing advances in medicine, or the global reduction in extreme poverty, we know that economic liberalism – giving individuals power over their own money and lives – is the path to prosperity.
As Milton Friedman said: “Underlying most arguments against the free market is the lack of belief in freedom itself.” We at 1828 know that when individuals are free to choose for themselves, they choose freedom – and no generation has ever been as liberal-minded as young people today.
