In Defense of Judicial Activism

by Russ Roberts on October 31, 2006

in Law, Podcast

In this podcast with Clint Bolick, co-founder of the Institute for Justice, he and I discuss the purpose of the judiciary, the importance of the Constitution for securing economic freedom, the Kelo case, Marbury v. Madison and the weird political economy of school choice. Clint actually makes the claim that the teacher’s union controls the Democratic Party. I expressed skepticism but his rebuttal was pretty convincing.
