Description

From the IHS Vault: Prof. Christopher Coyne lends an economist’s eye to the subject of foreign policy, specifically post-conflict reconstruction and “exporting democracy.” He examines recent U.S. policies, and suggests that a better way to promote peace and liberal democracy around the world would be principled non-intervention and free trade. This talk is based on Coyne’s book of the same title. To read more about his book, visit:
