Volume 2: Hayekian Socialism
Richard Epstein, the James Parker Hall Distinguished Service Professor, the Law School, the University of Chicago
Epstein is one of the most influential contemporary proponents of law and economics. He has written on a variety of legal topics from a perspective that seeks to blend concerns about individual liberty with the need for collective social control. Among his books are Bargaining with the State (1993); Forbidden Grounds: The Case against Employment Discrimination Laws (1992); and, perhaps his best-known work, Takings: Private Property and the Power of Eminent Domain (1985).
DVD. Volume 2. 84 minutes.
