Walter Williams on Minorities and Unemployment

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), The State Against Blacks (1982), Do the Right Thing: The People’s Economist Speaks (1995), and More Liberty Means Less Government (1999).

In this video from a 1984 Libertarian International conference, Williams explains how the state gets in the way of minorities finding gainful employment through occupational licensing restrictions and other discriminatory laws.
