“There once was an arch anti-statist,
Who thought the state’s dangers were greatest,
When those whom it bettered,
Fought those whom it fettered,
With statutes that made them the strongest.”
The above limerick was written by David Hart, Mason Liberty’s featured speaker this semester. Hart will be introduced by Professor Daniel Klein of the GMU Economics department. Join us February 17th at 6:30 pm in the JC 3rd floor, Meeting Rm A.
David Hart will be discussing the little known history of Bastiat as well as his new project with Liberty Fund. David is one of the editors of the Liberty Fund project to bring out the new English translation of the complete writings of Bastiat.
After the lecture Mason Liberty welcomes students and faculty to join us for dinner and drinks at Brion’s Grille. (located across the street from campus at University Mall)
