Free to Move

Ilya Somin, Professor of Law at George Mason University will discuss his newly published book, Free To Move: Foot Voting, Migration, and Political Freedom.

"Ballot box voting is often considered the essence of political freedom. But it has two major shortcomings: individual voters have little chance of making a difference, and they also face strong incentives to remain ignorant about the issues at stake. "Voting with your feet," however, avoids both of these pitfalls and offers a wider range of choices. In Free to Move, Ilya Somin explains how broadening opportunities for foot voting can greatly enhance political liberty for millions of people around the world."
