An Economist's Case for a Non-Interventionist Foreign Policy
By David Henderson
Peace Pick of the Week!
Saturday, May 14, 3:00 – 4:30 pm, An Economist’s Case for a Non-Interventionist Foreign Policy.
David Henderson applies economic analysis, combined with history, to make the case that the United States should have stayed out of every war it has been in since 1783. On the economic side, he focuses particularly on government’s information problem, perverse government incentives, and unintended consequences. On the history side, he focuses on World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, the Middle East, and the global war on terror.
David Henderson is a Professor of Economics at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, a Research Fellow with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and a Senior Fellow with the Fraser Institute in Vancouver, Canada.
