Guest Speaker Timothy Sandefur’s New Book

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Fall 2009 Guest Speaker Timothy Sandefur’s new book, The Right to Earn a Living: Economic Freedom and the Law, was recently published by the Cato Institute. From the description: “America’s founders thought the right to earn a living was so basic and obvious that it didn’t need to be mentioned in the Bill of Rights. The Right to Earn a Living charts the history of this fundamental human right, from the constitutional system that was designed to protect it by limiting government’s powers, to the Civil War Amendments that expanded protection to all Americans, regardless of race.”
