A Conversation with Joe Salerno: Mises on Nationalism and Immigration

By: Joseph T. Salerno, Jeff Deist
Jeff Deist and Joe Salerno in studio.

Does liberalism require “open borders”? Is nationalism compatible with individual rights? Is democratic majoritarianism a form of colonialism, with predictably bad outcomes for minority populations? And, can mass immigration be reconciled with self-determination?

Dr. Joe Salerno recently addressed these questions in a comprehensive article entitled Mises on Nationalism, the Right of Self-Determination, and the Problem of Immigration. It’s a very important piece, and one that every liberty-minded person should read.

In this studio interview, Jeff and Joe discuss Mises’s writings on these perennially-timely topics.
