Lesson 20 - Economic Freedom and Rights
To get started, the students take note of the economic freedoms and rights they enjoy in the United States today. Then they examine how political and personal rights established by the Constitution may either reinforce or conflict with economic rights and freedoms. Finally, the students examine Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Economic Bill of Rights, presented in his State of the Union address in 1944.
