Tyranny Inc. with Sohrab Ahmari

As part of an ongoing conversation surrounding the rethinking of economic policy on the American right, Compact Magazine editor Sohrab Ahmari joins host Garrett Snedeker and JWI Intern Victoria Baker to discuss his new book, Tyranny, Inc. Their discussion touches on the balance of power between capital and labor across varying periods of economic history, the potential for private corporations to pose a threat to individual liberty, and the appropriate role for unions in America’s economic and political life.

In addition to those publications, his writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Republic, The Spectator, Chronicle of Higher Education, Times Literary Supplement, Dissent, and The American Conservative, for which he is a contributing editor.
