Speaker:

  • Robert A. Levy, Chairman, Cato Institute

The Supreme Court has endorsed an exponential growth in federal government power, often at the expense of individual liberty. Essentially, the Court has rewritten the Constitution without input from or accountability to the people. Bob Levy will examine several of the most pernicious Supreme Court decisions of the modern era. In the process, he will untangle complex Court opinions and assess their implications for today's public policy debates. Bob will also contrast and compare liberal, conservative, and libertarian views of the Constitution.

Robert A. Levy is chairman of the Cato Institute’s board of directors. He joined Cato as senior fellow in constitutional studies in 1997 after 25 years in business. He also sits on boards of the Institute for Justice, the Federalist Society, and the George Mason University School of Law. He founded CDA Investment Technologies, a major provider of financial information and software, and was its CEO until 1991. He has written numerous articles on investments, law, and public policy. His writing has appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, National Review, and many other publications, in addition to discussing public policy on national radio and TV programs.
