The topic of global justice has long been a concern of people, but the conversation often ignores the work of developmental economists. On this episode of the Hayek Program Podcast, we explore this topic in a book panel discussion of In Defense of Openness: Why Global Freedom Is the Humane Solution to Global Poverty. The panelists discuss the linkage between economic rights and development and whether or not global freedom is rightly correlated with global justice. The panel includes:

- Peter J. Boettke (Moderator), Director of the F.A. Hayek Program & University Professor of Economics and Philosophy at George Mason University
- Jason Brennan (Author), Robert J. and Elizabeth Flanagan Family Professor of Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy at Georgetown University
