Thomas Sowell Returns

Thomas Sowell Returns. – Reason Magazine

One of America’s top social scientists on what has changed since he sat down with Reason 38 years ago.

Thirty-eight years ago, Reason contributor Thomas Hazlett and Senior Editor Manny Klausner sat down with University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) economist and social scientist Thomas Sowell for a sprawling interview about race, gender, poverty, economics, and what he viewed as the government’s many failed and misguided attempts to lift up poor minorities. Sowell talked about his history as a Marxist, his frustrations with working in government, and why he rejects the label “libertarian,” preferring instead to describe himself as “a person who dissents from the current liberal orthodoxy.”
