First released in 2013, and now available as a newly revised Cato ebook and paperback, Arnold Kling’s The Three Languages of Politics could not be any more timely, as Americans talk past one another in a growing swirl of volume, heat, and disinterest in contrary opinions. An insightful guide on how to lower the barriers coarsening our politics, this isn’t a book about one ideology over another. Instead, it is about how we communicate issues and our ideologies, and how language intended to persuade can too often divide. Kling offers a way to see through our rhetorical blinders so that we can incorporate new perspectives and thinking into the important issues we must together share and resolve.
To encourage people everywhere to better understand and appreciate the principles of government that are set forth in America’s founding documents, the Cato Institute published this pocket-size edition.

Cato University, the Cato Institute’s premier educational event of the year, will now be presented as a compact 3-day program several times a year, each with a different focus.

Discussions by Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith and top scholars and professors from Harvard University, Northwestern University, and the Cato Institute will solidify your expertise on basic economic principles, and then help you apply those tools to today’s most pressing issues.
