This lecture is part of Prof. Schäfer's lecture series "New Frontiers in Law and Economics".

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.

Lecturer: Prof. Ilya Somin, Professor of Law, George Mason University, Arlington
