Mustafa Akyol On The Muslim Case For Liberty

Author and journalist Mustafa Akyol talks about his efforts to build a bridge between Islam and classical liberalism.  He explains that Islam and liberal values are more compatible than many believe, and that today's violent radicalism is as much a threat to the world's Muslims as it is to the West.

Akyol was among the speakers at the 2017 International Students For Liberty Conference In Washington, D.C.

In Search Of History

The Fed vs. the Middle Class

With interest rates flattened [by the Federal Reserve], government zeroes out the future. Abandoned were 80 percent of private defined-benefit pension plans. Public plans faced a similar evisceration in the future. With no acknowledgement, the U.S. government had casually dispossessed the American middle class of its retirement assets and pushed millions of Americans into acute dependency on government programs. ... Government dependency negated the American dream.
