    CatoAudio puts you right in the middle of the important policy debates going on in Washington. This 60-minute audio magazine features inspiring discussions from well-known intellectuals, pundits, political leaders and Cato scholars. Previous recordings have included Milton Friedman, Hernando de Soto, Anne Applebaum, Alan Greenspan, P. J. O'Rourke, and Steve Forbes. From a libertarian view of limited government, free markets, and civil society, CatoAudio is your window to the ideas of freedom.

    Overall

    Wow! I usually listen to NPR, but Cato features the smartest, most thoughtful people on politics, public policy, and current events. And with Cato Audio, you can hear them without having to trek to DC to attend Cato events. As great as being there must be, this "best of" monthly means that Cato selects and edits their very best speechs and debates so that listeners can cut to the chase. In this age of soundbites and superficial campaign ads, it is awesome to hear cutting-edge thinkers lay it all out on the most pressing issues of our day without wasting time. Abandoning the stale left-right, us-them approach that dominates the media and much of political discourse, Cato Audio provides fresh thinking from the perspective of what's good for humananity without all the empty rhetoric that Washington usually provides. Excellent!

    David Boaz presents the essential guidebook to the libertarian perspective, detailing its roots, central tenets, solutions to contemporary policy dilemmas, and future in American politics. He confronts head-on the tough questions frequently posed to libertarians: What about inequality? Who protects the environment? What ties people together if they are essentially self-interested?

    Dennis says: "Clear, in-depth analysis"
    "Best Insight into Modern Political Life"
    Overall

    As Republicans and Democrats battle it out for votes, money, and power, Mr. Boaz lays out a coherent and compelling framework for evaluating their policies, promises, and rhetoric. Freedom and prosperity are inherently compelling to most Americans, but Mr. Boaz explains why and how they work to make our lives better. He provides numerous practical examples to demonstrate the power of liberty to solve problems. Most economics is antisceptic, and most political philosophy is too rareified to be relevant. Mr. Boaz has blended them for the intelligent lay reader who is sincerely interested in the body politic but not patient for the academic jargon that usually is offered to address this topic seriously. It should be required reading for every voter.

    Overall

    The Cato Institute hosts some of the smartest, most thoughtful people on government, politics, and public policy, and now you can hear them without having to trek to DC to attend Cato's programs in person. Even better, Cato selects and edits their very best speechs and debates so listeners can hear the most cutting-edge thinkers on the most pressing issues of our day without wasting time. It's always great on Cato Audio. Abandoning the stale left-right, us-them approach that dominates the media and much of political discourse, Cato Audio provides fresh thinking from the perspective of what's good for humananity without all the empty rhetoric that Washington usually provides.
