New Leviathan: The administrative state, self-rule, and sound governance

1d ago
SOURCE  

Description

Woodrow Wilson introduced the administrative state to American life, arguing it would make government more efficient and less corrupt. Since then, however, administrative agencies have steadily undermined self-government, reduced the sphere of individual liberty, and burdened economic growth. The Obama administration in particular has significantly expanded federal powers, delegating them to agencies and away from elected officials and hampering democratic accountability. Please join AEI as John Yoo and a panel of experts discuss the challenges of executive branch–sponsored growth in federal powers and possible reforms, addressed in his new edited volume, “Liberty’s Nemesis: The Unchecked Expansion of the State” (Encounter Books, 2016). A wine and cheese reception will follow, and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
