I am a relatively recent convert to the theory of libertarianism. In fact, I didn’t even know I was a libertarian until I started reading economics books, and I realized that the heavy hand of government is not always the best, and rarely the most efficient, way to help people. My first introduction to real libertarian thought was from two places: the Volokh Conspiracy blog and fellow CockleBur contributor Jacob H. Huebert’s book entitled Libertarianism Today (you can find a review of Libertarianism Today here).
So it is with great pleasure that I convinced Jacob to make a visit to the University of Washington School of Law. Jacob will be speaking about economic liberty, a subject he covers extensively in Libertarianism Today.
One of the subjects Jacob will talk about is how economic liberty should be favored by Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians. For Republicans economic liberty means smaller government. For Democrats economic liberty means opposition to government handouts for big business. And for Libertarians economic liberty means freedom from the government interference and ineffeciency.
So if you are in the Seattle area, please come to the law school at Room 127 on Monday, April 9th, to see Jacob explain the work he is doing at the Liberty Justice Center.
