Event Description:
The Suffolk Philosophy Society and the Philosophy Department present an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series
Classical Liberalism and the Role of Government
Featuring Eric Kramer, Suffolk University
Abstract: Properly conceived, classical liberalism is fundamentally a criticism of the social practice of welfare economics (rather than the normative framework of welfare economics) and its plausibility depends on complicated and often doubtful empirical claims about the way economists and other democratic actors (legislators, voters, members of the policy elite, etc.) influence policy outcomes. I use a series of models of the policymaking process to identify key assumptions and illustrate some of the issues involved by examining how Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman view democratic policymaking and evaluate key welfare state policies.
