Sweden and Finland applied for NATO membership, officially ending their decades long military independence. But given the history of NATO, how enthusiastic should classical liberals be to further expand the military alliance? Is NATO suitable for the challenges of the 21st century or should alternative arrangements be concluded within the framework of the EU and between liberal democracies?

To discuss these recent developments, Christopher Preble, the Co-director of the New American Engagement Initiative at the Atlantic Council and Emanuel Örtengren, the Acting Director of Stockholm Free World Forum, joined Adam Bartha on Markets & Morality.

How much is current volatility in financial markets driven by fear or uncertainty about future developments rather than by concrete economic news?  

IEA Communications and Public Affairs Officer Kieran Neild-Ali sat down to discuss this with Dr Ali Kabiri who is Head of the Department of Economics and International Studies at the University of Buckingham. Dr Kabiri recently co-authored a report for the Academic Journal, the Economic History Review, on the role of sentiment in the US economy: 1920 to 1934. The research explored how sentiment moved the economy at critical moments in the 1920s.

The post-war consensus. This is something that many of us take for granted as first, having existed and secondly, what drove the statism of pre-Thatcherite governments. However, Dr Steve Davies, IEA Head of Education, thinks otherwise. In this fascinating lecture, Steve describes the history of free market conservatism before Thatcher.

Dr Steve Davies is the Head of Education at the IEA. Previously he was program officer at the Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) at George Mason University in Virginia. He joined IHS from the UK where he was Senior Lecturer in the Department of History and Economic History at Manchester Metropolitan University. He has also been a Visiting Scholar at the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at Bowling Green State University, Ohio. A historian, he graduated from St Andrews University in Scotland in 1976 and gained his PhD from the same institution in 1984. He has authored several books, including Empiricism and History (Palgrave Macmillan, 2003) and was co-editor with Nigel Ashford of The Dictionary of Conservative and Libertarian Thought (Routledge, 1991).

Since the Russian aggression towards Ukraine, Western countries have imposed a wide range of economic sanctions on the regime and on individuals linked to them. 

How effective are these sanctions and who are they meant to target? 

Adam Bartha welcomed Jessica Miller, the Founder of Strela Advisory and Fred Roeder, the Founder of Consumer Choice Center to debate the issue. Fred highlighted that the belated European actions against Russian are necessary to stop Russian’s ability to inflict further pain on their neighbours, even if it has high economic costs on EU countries. Jessica argued against broad-based economic sanctions implemented for individuals, as the believes they are ineffective in changing Putin’s mind and deteriorate the rule of law in European countries.

On Thursday we learned that the Bank of England's MPC voted to raise interest rates to 1% from 0.75%, their highest level since 2009 and the fourth consecutive increase since December.  

The Bank is grappling with rising inflation – which forecast to top 10% by the end of the year – but also worried about the risk of recession. 

But did the Bank go far enough. And what are the ramifications for the UK economy?  

In this podcast, Julian Jessop, Economics Fellow at the Institute of Economic Affairs, assessed the Bank's decision and the outlook for the UK economy.

Libertarianism, socialism, classical liberalism, Marxism, anarchism. They're all terms that are thrown around in political discourse but it’s vitally important we understand these concepts and assess their merits and shortcomings.  

In this podcast, we uncover what libertarianism is and why people on both the left and the right claim to be libertarian. Is it an oxymoron to be a 'libertarian socialist'?  

Listen to the thoughts of IEA Head of Political Economy Kristian Niemietz and IEA Head of Cultural Affairs Marc Glendening.
