David Boaz Introduces Libertarianism: A Primer and The Libertarian Reader

Boaz presents the libertarian position - strong property rights, respect for the rule of law, and dedication to keeping the coercive power of government in check.

David Boaz is the executive vice president of the Cato Institute and the author of Libertarianism: A Primer and The Libertarian Reader, both published in 1997.

In this video, Boaz speaks at a Future of Freedom Foundation event immediately following the release of the Libertarianism: A Primer. He presents the libertarian position as a cooperative effort hinging on a strong set of property rights, respect for the rule of law, and a dedication to keeping the coercive power of government in check.
