Speech Topics

John Stossel of ABC News’ 20/20 and author of Myth, Lies and Downright Stupidity talks about the benefits of individual freedom and free markets. In his 30 year journey from a consumer reporter to his current job as ABC’s in-house contrarian, Stossel learned that “businessmen aren’t the bad guys after all.” In fact, today’s entrepreneurs, often depicted in the media as robbers and polluters, are really “the heroes who make our lives better.”


“Liberty,” says Stossel, “is what made America great, yet little by little, Americans are giving up that liberty.” He discusses:



  • Unnecessary fear – Why are Americans rejecting the very freedom that has lifted more people out of poverty than any society anywhere, ever?

  • Safety regulations’ unintended consequences – Could they injure more people than they protect?

  • Endless media hype- Do “we” (the news media) cause unrealistic fears and how do they compare to life’s REAL risks?
