Today’s recommendation is not a book but a quarterly journal produced by the Cato Institute. Four times a year, a read can have solid libertarian policy prescriptions mailed to them.
Cato Journal is America’s leading free‐market public policy journal. Every issue is a valuable resource for scholars concerned with questions of public policy, yet it is written and edited to be accessible to the interested lay reader. Clive Crook of The Economist has called it “the most consistently interesting and provocative journal of its kind.”
Cato Journal’s stable of writers constitutes a veritable Who’s Who in business, government, and academia. Recent contributors include James M. Buchanan, Richard Epstein, Ben Bernanke, Robert Higgs, Václav Klaus, Justin Yifu Lin, Allan H. Meltzer, Charles Murray, William Niskanen, Douglass C. North, José Piñera, Anna J. Schwartz, John B. Taylor, and Lawrence H. White.
