A High Energy Conversation With Richard Epstein. by The Elephant's Child

Nick Gillespie of Reason had a conversation with Richard Epstein recently at the New York University Law School.  Richard Epstein is a professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School, and a fellow at the Hoover Institution.  He works at the intersection of Law and Economics, and is on my list of people I always listen to carefully when I get the chance.

With Richard Epstein, you have to listen carefully, because he goes at warp speed. A YouTube video is the perfect venue because you can go back and catch what you missed before, and you will miss a lot because he speaks, as Power Line noted, “at the speed of thought.”
