The next podcast at Liberty Law Talk is with John Inazu on his new and timely book Liberty’s Refuge: The Forgotten Freedom of Assembly. Inazu has authored a key work that challenges Supreme Court decisions that acknowledge only in the breach this fundamental constitutional liberty.
Nicholas Capaldi attempts to reclaim the narrative of liberty in his review of Stephen Bainbridge’s Corporate Governance After the Financial Crisis. Capaldi argues at one point that the power given to shareholder activists in the wake of Sarbanes-Oxley and Dodd-Frank has only emboldened the Rousseaueans of our order, or those “that . . . see democracy as a way of redistributing wealth and power away from management and what they consider obscenely overpaid CEOs; that they welcome the centralization of power in the federal government and the SEC, and that they hope through their conception of the democratic process to gain political control over corporate America.”
