PRINCETON: Journalist John Stossel touts capitalism, blasts its enemies
A free market engenders far greater innovation and economic growth than a government-regulated market can, said John Stossel, host of Fox Business show “Stossel” and 19-time Emmy Award-winning journalist.
“Most of life comes out of spontaneous order,” said Mr. Stossel, a self-proclaimed libertarian. In a talk titled “Capitalism and its Enemies,” given at Princeton University on Monday afternoon, he explained that a free, uninhibited system works best, and bureaucratic regulation inhibits efficient business.
The 1969 Princeton graduate recalled how difficult it was for him just to open a lemonade stand in front of his office.

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second in a series of articles about the teaching of writing/language arts in area public schools, with a focus on middle and upper school practices.
After over 40 years of dedicated service to the West Windsor community, the Twin W First Aid Squad was closed down by the township on March 24, after both parties failed to sign a memo of understanding, despite the fact that the squad agreed to sign the document on March 23.
Sadly, again we face a terrifying as well as horrendous event with the news of the crashed Germanwings Flight 9525 airliner.
Living in the City
A photography exhibit explores activism through art
THE 1960s and ‘70s were surely decades marked by protests and demonstrations. Whether it was anti- war/ anti-draft, or to promote racial equality, women’s and gay rights, or to take a stance on the dreadful and dangerous conditions of the crumbling cities, people took their feelings of injustice to the streets.
This era of activism and the art and documentation that went with it — and more importantly, the changes that arose from this art-and-activism — is being celebrated at the Princeton University Art Museum, with the multi-media exhibit The City Lost and Found: Capturing New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, 1960-1980, on view through June 7.
Among the programming related to the exhibit is a multi-week film series; this continues March 24, 6 p.m., at the Betts Auditorium in the School of Architecture with “Chicago, 1968,” featuring a pair of short films and a post-screening discussion. (See artmuseum.princeton.edu for more information.)
