David Boaz Introduces Libertarianism: A Primer and The Libertarian Reader

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.
