I, Pencil: The Movie

Lynne Kiesling

Whether or not you’ve read Leonard Read’s famous essay I, Pencil, I recommend this short video rendition, courtesy of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

It captures poetically the fascinating, marvelous coordination that we achieve through markets, enabling prosperity and well-being beyond what we would each individually be able to achieve alone. And at IPencilMovie.org there’s a set of additional commentary videos and other resources for your enjoyment, for use in the classroom, and to share with friends.
