Featuring Richard Epstein, University of Chicago School of Law; with comments by Peter Byrne, Georgetown University Law Center.

A Cato Book Forum featuring Richard Epstein, University of Chicago School of Law, with comments by Peter Byrne, Georgetown University Law Center. The prolific scholar Richard Epstein has written his most accessible book yet defending a free society, explaining “how a concern with the common good does not eviscerate the traditional protections otherwise provided to individual liberty and private property.” This volume subjects a wide range of current issues — from Social Security to environmental harms, discrimination, and many more — to the systematic and rigorous scrutiny for which Epstein is so well known.
