Free Markets and Capitalism

From the IHS Vault: Prof. Steve Horwitz explores what he calls “Libertarian Cosmopolitanism.” Horwitz argues that in a world of globalized trade and communications, we should not just tolerate difference, we should acknowledge the benefits of voluntarily trading, exchanging, and interacting with others different from ourselves. He addresses issues including immigration, population growth, and free trade.
Steve Horwitz is a Professor of Economics at St. Lawrence University.
