Don Boudreaux and Sally Kohn debate the role of greed and self-interest in economic decisionmaking and the role of government to minimize the effects of greed. Boudreaux contends that property rights and markets will better serve the public interest and minimize greed while Kohn argues that government needs to play a vital role. They use cakes to illustrate their points.
