Free Markets and a Civil Society

Adam Smith and other philosophers of the Scottish Enlightenment provided the road map for America's historically vibrant economy. The American Founders were deeply influenced by the thought of these Scottish thinkers. The mixture of free markets with the civic vibrancy of early America created a new form of social life. The Founders wanted to “promote the general Welfare and secure the Blessings of Liberty” through civic activity, religious life, and commerce. I aim to promote and extrapolate these same ideas and ideals through research, public advocacy and education.
