Cato’s Letter is a free quarterly publication of speeches and articles that address the traditional American ideas of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. While each one we publish is noteworthy and insightful, the selections below are some of our favorites. We hope you’ll also take an opportunity to view other Cato’s Letter offerings in our archives and when there sign up to receive future editions, which will be mailed to you free of charge. In addition, Toward Liberty: The Idea That Is Changing the World, offers an exceptional collection of essays published by Cato over its first 25 years.
