"Why U.S. economy outpaces rest of world" is the heading for a recent Daily Herald front-page story written by the left-wing Associated Press. Of course, they failed to recognize that the true engine of our economy is our free enterprise system. They failed to recognize that entrepreneurs in a free enterprise system can flourish and make businesses like Intel, Microsoft, Google and Facebook.
