GMU Econ Proud

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Don Boudreaux)


With his great 1982 book, The State Against Blacks, my GMU Econ colleague Walter Williams was, along with Thomas Sowell, way out in front in explaining how illiberal policies hurt blacks. The obstacles and snares Walter then identified are now mostly worse: the war on drugs war on people who choose to ingest certain products continues; housing and land-use restrictions are worse than ever; the government-school system is a calamity disproportionately for blacks; and of course the minimum wage remains as a barrier to so many young black men and women wishing to enter the labor market.

Walter has been active in speaking out against the new illiberal measures flying under the banner of “anti-racism,” “inclusiveness,” and the like. Here’s one recent column on “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.” Walter’s column is syndicated nationally, including in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, read by state legislators in Virginia.

My colleagues in the GMU Law school released a well thought-out commitment in favor of free speech and academic freedom.

My Econ colleague Bryan Caplan has been writing insightfully on the same matters, see here, here, here, and most especially here.

Finally, my Econ colleague Dan Klein wrote a letter to Gregory Washington, the new President of GMU. The student newspaper did a story about it. And Dan did a presentation on these matters, video here and text here (SSRN). Dan’s letter is getting picked-up, for example here.
