Race & economics : how much can be blamed on discrimination? by Walter E Williams( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Liberty versus the tyranny of socialism : controversial essays by Walter E Williams( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do we want socialized medicine? Do peace treaties produce peace? What's wrong with education? What's discrimination? Do we really care about children? Is this the America we want? Williams answers these and other provocative questions with his usual unflinching candor. Although many of these thoughtful, hard-hitting essays focus on the growth of government and our loss of liberty, many others demonstrate how the tools of free market economics can be used to improve our lives in ways ordinary people can understand--not just in the realm of trade and the cost of goods and services but in such diverse areas as racial discrimination, national defense, and even marriage

More liberty means less government : our Founders knew this well by Walter E Williams( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new collection of thoughtful, hard-hitting essays, Walter E. Williams once again takes on the left wing's most sacred cows with provocative insights, brutal candor, and an uncompromising reverence for personal liberty and the principles laid out in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Nationally known as an amusing and radical crusader for liberty, Williams challenges the assumptions of contemporary liberalism with ruthless honesty, presenting an impressive array of powerful ideas and substantive information to frame his perspectives on the issues facing America in such critical areas as race, sex, government, law, education, the environment, and international relations. Most of human behavior, Williams maintains, cannot and should not be regulated by law. He passionately asserts that it is the informal codes of conduct and moral standards that provide the glue that holds society together. But when these codes and standards -- or traditional values -- are ignored, trivialized, or forgotten, we "take another step toward barbarism and incivility." Using the fundamentals of economics -- and basic common sense -- to provide his points, Williams offers wise, witty, and stimulating insights. - Back cover

The morality of the free market( Visual )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Walter Williams, John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, and Karen Vaughn, professor of economics at George Mason University, discuss the morality of power in countries that partake in the free market and the way this impacts the rest of the world. Addresses the criticism of prominent Christians that the free market system enriches some while oppressing many others. Williams and Vaughn suggest that because one amasses wealth by serving others, capitalism is potentially more "Christian" than the presumably more benevolent socialist systems
All it takes is guts : [a minority view] by Walter E Williams( )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of Walter Williams' essays, drawn from his syndicated column. Williams writes with brilliant clarity--and he doesn't mince words. He destroys a number of prevailing myths, such as economic and social disparities being the result of racism and economic sanctions punishing the South African blacks more that the whites. Williams explains why the nature of congressmen is not to act in the national interest and shows how government regulations hinder rather than help the disadvantaged. Listening to these columns is both entertaining and enlightening

The law by Frédéric Bastiat( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When a reviewer wishes to give special recognition to a book, he predicts that it will still be read 'a hundred years from now.' The Law, first published as a pamphlet in June, 1850, is already more than a hundred years old. And because its truths are eternal, it will still be read when another century has passed. Frederic Bastiat (1801-1850) was a French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before - and immediately following - the Revolution of February 1848. This was the period when France was rapidly turning to complete socialism. As a Deputy to the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Bastiat was studying and explaining each socialist fallacy as it appeared. And he explained how socialism must inevitably degenerate into communism. But most of his countrymen chose to ignore his logic. The Law is here presented again because the same situations exists in America today as in the France of 1848. The same socialist-communist ideas and plans that were then adopted in France are now sweeping America. The explanations and arguments then advanced against socialism by Mr. Bastiat are - word for word - equally valid today. His ideas deserve a serious hearing"--Page 2
