Author and Professor Greg Collins joined JWI Deputy Director Garrett Snedeker and intern Chance Cook to discuss his new book, “Commerce and Manners in Edmund Burke’s Political Economy”. Collins’s book explores the intersection of Edmund Burke’s economic thought and views on natural law in light of newly discovered manuscripts and data. Prof. Collins gives a clear picture of Burke’s views on revenue, taxes, trade, and other economic issues. Snedeker, Cook, and Collins discuss different aspects of the book, and why it is important to study Burke’s philosophy.
