Video of panel on “Individual Rights” at NYU conference on Richard Epstein’s The Classical Liberal Constitution

Below is a link to a video of the panel on “Individual Rights” at the recent NYU Conference on Richard Epstein’s outstanding new book, The Classical Liberal Constitution.

The participants include Daryl Levinson (NYU),Deborah Malamud (NYU), Steven Menashi (NYU fellow), Tom Merrill (Columbia), and me. My talk (beginning at around the 30 minute point), explores the tension between originalism and economic theory in Epstein’s work.
