Welcome to my personal web site. I’ve devoted much of my life to trying to eradicate coercion and secure liberty for all and I’ve learned that while it’s a lot of work, it can be personally rewarding, too. I’m presently Vice President for International Programs at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, General Director of the Atlas Global Initiative for Free Trade, Peace, and Prosperity, a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute, and Director of Cato University. In addition to my work at Atlas and Cato, I have served on several board of trustees and currently serve on active advisory boards of a number of other organizations. I travel a great deal and speak and lecture on the history of liberty and constitutionalism, free trade and peace, individualism, public choice economics, and the moral and legal foundations of individual rights. My book Realizing Freedom: Libertarian Theory, History, and Practice contains some of my writings on economics, history, political theory, jurisprudence, moral philosophy, and politics and strategy. My curriculum vitae and a few of my published writings are available on this site. (A couple require fast internet access; either that, or a lot of patience.) On this website I post blog entries on whatever seems interesting at the time or strikes my fancy.
