    Hey Brion — interesting course! Do you think you could do a quick writeup on Reagan? You mentioned him a few times and it might be useful to discuss him since his legacy is being thrown around a lot in the current presidential race. Any sources are also welcomed!

    I would like to hear Brion do a course on all 43 Presidents, giving each of them a libertarian assessment. Wouldn’t that be fun?

    No write-up that I know of, but some things to look into are the Contra scandal, involvement in the Afghanistan war, his dealings with Kruschev, support of gun control measures and civil asset forfeiture.

    Khruschev left office decades before Reagan came to power.

    You might enjoy a book analyzing each president from a libertarian point of view, Ivan Eland’s Recarving Rushmore. Eland doesn’t think much of Reagan.
