    In Defense of Classical Liberalism (Among Other Things)

    Hoover Institution fellows Richard Epstein and Adam White discuss Richard’s recent essay for Defining Ideas, which defends classical liberalism against the recent critiques of conservative political philosopher Patrick Deneen and others. From there they move on to other critics of classical liberalism—namely, modern-day advocates for socialism. And finally they touch on Harvard Medical School’s removal of portraits of white men, and the debate over statutes honoring confederate soldiers.

    Constitutional Conflicts With Congress and the Supreme Court

    In Georgia and Alabama, state legislatures have enacted laws on abortion, perhaps teeing up new legal challenges to the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade precedent. Meanwhile, in Washington, the House Democrats’ subpoenas to President Trump’s former White House Counsel and to his longtime accountants are sparking debates and litigation over the scope of Congress’s investigative powers and the options for presidential immunity against such investigations. Hoover fellows Richard Epstein and Adam White discuss these political and legal conflicts.
