Government, The Market, and Minorities

Walter E. Williams is the John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University and an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute. He is a well-known columnist and the author of South Africa’s War Against Capitalism (1989) and The State Against Blacks (1982).

In this video, Williams speaks at a Libertarian International conference in Stockholm, Sweden in 1986 on how governments interact with minorities. He covers everything from prejudice and discrimination to segregation, equal pay for women, and “subsidized preference indulgence.” He also answers audience questions about investment, foreign policy, immigration, welfare, and many other topics.
