Expanding Opportunity

Often, under the guise of helping people, politicians and bureaucrats have erected countless barriers that prevent people—especially the least fortunate—from pursuing and achieving their dreams.

The examples are almost endless. These include:

  • an education system that fails to prepare students for participation in the 21st century global economy
  • a criminal justice system that disproportionately affects the poor and minorities
  • poverty-inducing regulations that prevent people from starting businesses or getting good jobs, and
  • a broken tax code that impedes growth

These and other barriers often trap entire communities in generational poverty and dependency. Breaking down these barriers should be one of policymakers’ top priorities.
