Student Scholarship on the Web

The Institute intends, from time to time, to post worthy scholarship by undergraduate and graduate students regarding areas of research in classical liberal thought. Our first essay is provided by a former Belmont University student (and recent graduate of Tulane University's School of Law), Jarrett Hale. Hale challenges the misuse of public goods theory and practice by modern liberalism which, he contends, threatens the fundamental liberal value of individual rights.
