American Presidents: The best and the worst
October 1, 2021
What makes a president "good" or "bad"? Are historians always the best judge of such things? Or should we be getting second opinions?
In this lecture, Larry Reed, president emeritus of the Foundation for Economic Education, offers his answers to these questions while taking us on a stroll through the triumphs and follies of some of the men who have occupied the White House.
Reed’s presentation was delivered as part of the 2014 Acton Lecture Series.
