David Henderson is Associate Professor of Economics at the Graduate School of Business and Public Policy, Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. He is also a Research Fellow with the Hoover Institution. He blogs at econlog.econlib.org. On December 10th, Dr. Henderson addressed a small gathering at Occupy Monterey in California. His talk was entitled, "Crony Capitalism versus the Free Market." In his speech Dr. Henderson introduced a number of examples which I suspect most of the audience members had never thought of before. Some of the highlights include the real story of the so-called Robber Barons Cornelius Vanderbilt and John D. Rockfeller, a discussion on Social Security, how trade promotes peace and a defense of corporations such as Nike employing children in the third world as the "best of a bunch of bad options." The links provided are a paraphrased transcript.
For more information on some of these topics introduced by Dr. Henderson, the Library of Economics and Liberty at Econlib.org is a good source.
