It is important for the general public of American Public Television to be exposed to economic education as well as a wide variety of public policy debates.
This is why the World Show and the Montreal Economic Institute (MEI) partnered in late 2011 to launch the Free Markets Series for the PBS network of affiliates in order to address this need and to provide a platform for in-depth interviews to some of the most dynamic and influential policy thinkers and activists.
The World Show and the MEI shall continue this endeavor with Seasons 5 and 6 of this successful series. Each of these new seasons will feature 6 episodes.
After each season’s episodes have all aired, they will be archived as TV-quality videos on the dedicated series website (freemarketseries.com), thus continuing to build a unique educational platform available to all. This video library extends the lifetime of the series indefinitely.
