The RJ Moeller Show: Lawrence Reed and Michael Walsh

This week’s episode of “The RJ Moeller Show” features two fascinating interviews with two fascinating individuals. First up is RJ’s conversation with Lawrence Reed. Lawrence Reed Mr. Reed currently serves as the president of the Foundation for Economic Education, one of the oldest free-market organizations in the United States, founded in 1946 by Leonard E. Read to study and advance the freedom philosophy. FEE’s mission is to offer the most consistent case for the “first principles” of freedom: the sanctity of private property, individual liberty, the rule of law, the free market and the moral superiority of individual choice and responsibility over coercion. Prior to serving as FEE’s president, Larry was a founder and president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. Mr. Reed holds a bachelor’s in economics from Grove City College and a master’s in history from Slippery Rock State University. Over the past 25 years, Lawrence Reed has reported on hyperinflation in South America, black markets from behind the Iron Curtain, reforms and repression in China and Cambodia, and civil war inside Nicaragua and Mozambique. Additionally, he spent time with the Contra rebels during the Nicaraguan civil war; and lived for two weeks with Mozambique rebel forces at their bush headquarters in 1991, while the country was engaged at the height of their guerrilla conflict. We chat with Mr. Reed about his experiences in journalism, what it’s like to run a think tank, and why Adam Smith matters to today’s younger generation. In the second segment, RJ sits down with novelist, author, journalist and screenplay writer Michael Walsh. Mr. Walsh is a contributor to National ReviewBreitbart.com and a host of other popular websites and publications. He has traveled the world covering everything from classical music behind the Iron Curtain to political turmoil.
