Foundations of a Free Society: Limited Government

The IEA is launching a series of short videos outlining the key elements of a free society, explained by our Head of Education Dr Steve Davies.

In the first video, Steve outlines the first pillar of a free society: limited government.

He explains how, in a free society, a limited government is not only defined by how much it taxes and spends – but also by the scope of its power and reach into citizens’ daily lives.

The films are based on our book ‘Foundations of a Free Society’, written for the IEA by the Adam Smith Institute’s Dr Eamonn Butler.
