Wealth and Poverty in the Liberal Tradition
By Loren E. Lomasky
Kyle Swan

This article appeared in the Spring 2009 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Classical liberals have long held that a social system that maximizes individual liberty is the most reliable institution for eradicating poverty. To bring the blessings of liberty to the billions of individuals who still suffer in extreme privation, the lessons of John Locke and Adam Smith must continue to find apt and effective students.
