Economist and historian Robert Higgs has advanced our understanding
of the causes, means, and effects of government power and the need
to deconstruct statism and re-establish institutions that protect
and advance liberty, prosperity, and peace. His work has engaged
such issues as health care, the environment, law and economics,
urban development, race discrimination, agriculture, immigration,
war and peace, economic development, government spending and debt,
welfare, money and banking, presidential power, civil liberties,
the Great Depression, science, unemployment, and far more.
His new book offers general readers keen analysis and engaging
wit, informed by humility and compassion. Higgs examines the moral
and practical imperatives of individual liberty, entrepreneurship
and innovation, peace, economic growth, personal responsibility,
civic virtue, and the rule of law. Taking a
Stand’s 99 short, accessible chapters present a
powerful and uplifting vision for the future.
