The American Experiment in Government

I have been watching an excellent set of interviews on a website called Uncommon Knowledge, conducted by Peter Robinson of the Hoover Institute at Stanford University.  Focussing on economics and current world affairs, the quality of the interviewees is astonishing.  From Thomas Sowell to the very interesting Prince Hans-Adam II, who has reigned in Liechtenstein since 1989, the conversations range through time from the Romans to present day, and cover the planet, from China to the Middle East to North America.  They discuss forms of government, policy, war and jurisprudence.  I highly recommend watching these.  Each interview is about 30 minutes long, and well worth the time. Here is an interview with economist Gary Becker, to whet your appetite:
