Law over Power: Liberty's Work

By David Boaz -- August 17, 2012

“I was asked once by some skeptics what the most important libertarian accomplishment ever was. I said ‘the abolition of slavery.’ OK, they conceded. Name another. I thought more carefully and said ‘bringing power under the rule of law’.”

The Cato Institute┬áhas played an important role in energy and energy/environmental scholarship in the last several decades.]
