Wonderful news from Brazil: during October, a group of highly talented young scholars will lead the "Freedom Road Show" ("Liberdade na Estrada"), a series of lectures on libertarianism and the importance of individual freedom to be delivered in fifteen Brazilian university campuses. The event is sponsored by OrdemLivre.org with the support of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation and the Cato Institute. One of the participants is my friend Adolfo Sachsida.
The "Freedom Road Show" mission, in their own words, is "to expose Brazilian university students to libertarian thinking, which supports free markets, peace and individual rights. The objective is to promote a direct understanding of classical liberalism and to show how different it is from the "neoliberal" stereotype [widely accepted in Latin America] that was invented by its intellectual opponents on the left and on the right."
