Civil Liberties

Libertarianism and Antidiscrimination Law


The latest issue of Cato Unbound is devoted to the topic of "Discrimination and Liberty," inspired by Rand Paul's controversial remarks about the 1964 Civil Rights Act. In the lead essay, George Mason University law professor David Bernstein criticizes Paul's comments and offers "a better libertarian approach to antidiscrimination law." Freeman Editor Sheldon Richman, Cato Institute Research Fellow Jason Kuznicki, and Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron will all weigh in with reply essays over the next week. Read them all here.
