Charles Murray, author, libertarian and political scientist, sat down with IEA Head of Public Policy Ryan Bourne on ieaTV to discuss his newest book By The People: Rebuilding Liberty Without Permission and how to defeat the growing regulatory state.

Charles presently serves as the Templeton Leadership Fellow at Atlas Network, in addition to being the W. H. Brady Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.  He first came to national attention in 1984 with the publication of Losing Ground, which has been credited as the intellectual foundation for the Welfare Reform Act of 1996. His 1994 New York Times bestseller, The Bell  Curve  sparked heated controversy for its analysis of the role of IQ in shaping America’s class structure.
