Quotation of the Day…

… is from page 83 of my great colleague Walter Williams’s 2010 autobiography, Up From the Projects (links added):

I probably became a libertarian through exposure to tough-minded professors who encouraged me to think with my brain instead of my heart. Another important exposure: to the works of great philosopher/economists such as Frederic Bastiat, Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich A. Hayek, and Milton Friedman.

DBx: Elsewhere in his autobiography Walter justly celebrates the brilliance of Armen Alchian – one of Walter’s actual teachers at UCLA and an economist whose works, in my opinion, remain very much under-appreciated.
