About the Freeman

The Freeman magazine is the flagship publication of the Foundation for Economic Education and one of the oldest, most respected journals of liberty in America. It was founded in 1950 through the efforts of John Chamberlain, Henry Hazlitt, Isaac Don Levine, and Suzanne La Follette. FEE acquired it in 1956 and within two years it had reached 42,000 subscribers.

Through its articles, commentaries and book reviews, several generations of Americans have learned about the consequences and contradictions that flow from the illiberal policies of collectivism, interventionism, and the welfare state. For more than 60 years, the Freeman has uncompromisingly defended the ideals of a free society.
