The Paradox of Progress
Please log-in or sign-up to order your Free Annual Video
The automobile killed the horse and buggy. The airplane signaled the demise of passenger railroads. The invention of the typewriter created millions of jobs, but when the personal computer came along, those jobs were gone.

The Paradox of Progress shows this process of “Creative Destruction” through the story of the revolutionary system of package delivery pioneered by FedEx.

Should the government allow new businesses to force old ones out? Watch and decide for yourself.
