Liberty and the Failures of Government
Tuesday, July 20, 1999
Walter E. Williams
Professor of Economics, George Mason University. Author of the book, More Liberty Means Less Government
Walter E. Williams is one of America’s best known and insightful commentators on current affairs, politics, and the economy. Millions have read his syndicated newspaper columns or heard his stints as guest host of “The Rush Limbaugh Show.” In this special Independent Policy Forum, Professor Williams will examine the results governmental bureaucracies have achieved when attempting to address such problems as health, education, crime, housing, civil liberties, and transportation. His analysis will show how government today is a more of a usurper of rights than it is a protector, and that innovative, free market approaches offer the best hope of solving major social problems.
