Leonard Liggio on the Resurgence of Classical Liberalism

Leonard Liggio is currently the Executive Vice President of Academics at the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, a Distinguished Senior Scholar at the Institute for Humane Studies, and a Research Professor at George Mason University’s School of Law.

In this video from a Libertarian International conference in Beitostølen, Norway in 1985, Liggio speaks about the reemergence of classical liberalism as a reaction to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal policies and America’s entry into World War II. He also covers the founding of the Foundation for Economic Education by F. A. Harper and Leonard Read in 1946.
