George Will on Brink Lindsey on America’s libertarianism


George Will has a deeply intelligent review/appreciation/critique of Brink Lindsey’s truly fine new book, The Age of Abundance: How Prosperity Transformed America’s Politics and Culture, in today’s New York Times Book Review: “Land of Plenty: What makes Americans different? The Cato Institute’s Brink Lindsey has some ideas.”

Excerpts from Brink’s book, which is rich and interesting and very provocative, have been run recently as the cover story in a recent Cato Policy Report (“How Prosperity Made Us More Libertarian“) and as the cover story in this month’s Reason magazine. (You’ve got to get a copy of Reason to read the essay; it won’t be online for another month.)
