The Adam Smith Society has launched virtual programming, a series of interactive online video briefings by policy experts on a variety of topics including the many dimensions of the evolving coronavirus crisis.
The United States was founded on the principles of individual liberty, limited government, and the rule of law, which led to evolution of the market system that has enriched billions of people around the world. But the size of the US government has steadily grown in the past century. More troubling, in recent decades public policy has increasingly been decided by autonomous executive agencies with minimal accountability. The Coronavirus pandemic threatens to accelerate both of those trends. Join Washington Post columnist George Will for a discussion of how we arrived where we are, and how to plot a course back to a government that reflects America’s foundational values.
