John Allison, President & CEO of the Cato Institute, Addresses Liberty, Limited Government and the Financial Crisis

I had the pleasure of talking this week with John Allison, president & CEO of the Cato Institute. Unlike many other organizations located in Washington, D.C., Cato is neither Democratic nor Republican in nature, but rather it is a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets and peace. That status alone is a great reason to talk with John Allison, but it gets even better.

Prior to becoming the president & CEO of the Cato Institute, John was chairman and CEO of BB&T Corporation (BBT), the 10th-largest financial services holding company headquartered in the United States. During his tenure as CEO from 1989 to 2008, BB&T grew from $4.5 billion to $152 billion in assets. John also has written a fantastic book — “The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why Pure Capitalism is the World Economy’s Only Hope.” Not only did it receive a number of rave reviews, but it sat at the top of the Wall Street Journal’s best-seller list.

During the course of our conversation, John and I talk about a variety of topics, including why a sense and understanding of liberty is essential, why regulation is bad for the market and what we can do to promote a healthy free market and end unemployment in America. We’ll even touch on the Federal Reserve, an organization that some say is only helping fuel the problems we are experiencing today.
