This week on "Q&A," our guest is Dr. Walter Williams, a John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University, and syndicated columnist and author.
During the show, Williams discusses his Libertarian views, growing up in the Philadelphia projects and the segregation issues he confronted after being drafted in the Army in 1959. Willaims, who teaches microeconomic theory at the Virginia institution, also talks about how he became a substitute host for Rush Limbaugh's radio show.
He shares his views on Social Security, calling it a bad deal for Americans, and says Americans should be allowed to sell their own organs as an issue of private property rights.
Dr. Williams, who has been teaching at George Mason since 1980, earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees from California State University in Los Angeles before earning his Ph.D. in Economics from UCLA in 1972. He has written 10 books and his syndicated weekly column appears in over 140 newspapers throughout the country.
