In the first of a two-part series, Peter Boettke and Virgil Storr reflect on the legacy of Don Lavoie as both a mentor and scholar. As part of their conversation, Boettke and Storr consider Lavoie's role in both of their young academic careers as they remember his example of being "an intellectual interlocutor" and "honest in dialogue." Additionally, they recall Lavoie's efforts to teach his students the foundations of liberty and why Lavoie believed so strongly in the value of freedom.
