Peter Boettke & Richard Ebeling on the Modern State of Liberalism

On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, Peter Boettke and Richard Ebeling discuss the emergent threats to today's liberal order and what can be done to foster a spirit conducive to liberty, both subjects of Ebeling's book, For a New Liberalism. Along the way, the pair recall the work of previous scholars, such as Lionel Robbins and Wilhelm Roepke, as masters of economics and advocates for the humaneness and value of a free and open society. They also address the coevolution of liberal political and economic orders, particularly highlighting the role of free trade.
