A Voice in the Wilderness In Defense of "Mere Conservatism"


Walter E. Williams (Part 1) 9.1.2011

walter e williamsDr. Walter E. Williams is one the smartest, most interesting men in America alive today.  Hands down.  He is a professor of economics at George Mason University, the author of a syndicated weekly column, and probably best known as a frequent (and outstanding) guest-host on The Rush Limbaugh Show.

Oh, and we had him on the podcast this week!

Here's more of Dr. Williams impressive bio (from his website):

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dr. Walter E. Williams holds a B.A. in economics from California State University, Los Angeles, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in economics from UCLA. He also holds a Doctor of Humane Letters from Virginia Union University and Grove City College, Doctor of Laws from Washington and Jefferson College and Doctor Honoris Causa en Ciencias Sociales from Universidad Francisco Marroquin, in Guatemala, where he is also Professor Honorario.

Dr. Williams has served on the faculty of George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, as John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics, since 1980; from 1995 to 2001, he served as department chairman. He has also served on the faculties of Los Angeles City College, California State University Los Angeles, and Temple University in Philadelphia, and Grove City College, Grove City, Pa.

We could not have been more thrilled to speak to Professor Williams, and I know you're going to enjoy my conversation with him.

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
