You have the right to earn an honest living. This is called “economic liberty” and it is protected by the U.S. Constitution.

The Entrepreneur’s Survival Guide is a comprehensive roadmap for any grassroots battle for economic liberty. Whether this is your first time fighting city hall or you are a seasoned activist, this resource contains a wealth of valuable information. And we at IJ are here to help you every step of the way.
