Liberty: A Path to its Recovery

SEPTEMBER 09, 2009 by F. A. HARPER

This 1949 book by Harper is a short and very readable overview of the concept of liberty, written at a time when liberty was under threat in all sorts of ways. He discusses three types of liberty: of thought, of personal relationships, and economic freedom. He also explores the relationship between rules and liberty as well as the importance of distinguishing voluntary from involuntary relationships. The final chapter is a musing on how liberty can be recovered.

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
