Liberal Internationalism


Anyone interested in foreign policy should read Tyler Cowen’s critique of the new book Heads in the Sand. Cowen’s very short but very rich post, which should be read several times for full understanding, is a critique of Liberal Internationalism, the belief that America needs to engage multilateral institutions (like the UN) to promote world security, human rights, and peace. A Liberal Internationalist myself, I was swayed by Cowen’s salient points of criticism.

Cowen co-authors the blog Marginal Revolutionan excellent source for social, political, and economic commentary.
