James M. Buchanan Libertarian Socialist?
Why yes it is true, Mason's own James Buchanan was a "libertarian socialist" and found his way during one of Frank Knight's University of Chicago economics courses. Today we celebrate his birthday and his legacy of studying "politics without romance" in grave contradiction to his youthful views of libertarian socialism. We can only hope to attract and convert more bright minds to the field of Public Choice and continue the tradition started by Buchanan.
Knowledge of his "libertarian socialism" comes from The Library of Economics and Liberty
