1981 Reason’s Frontlines (Cato Board Fires Rothbard)

In the libertarian publication Reason’s newsletter called “Frontlines” the authors report on the news of the day. This issue is particularly interesting because it discusses the firing of Murray Rothbard from the Cato Institute, which was big news in the libertarian community. 

The portion of the newsletter that discusses the firing of Rothbard notes the differences between him and the leader of the Cato Institute, Ed Crane. This dynamic contributed to Rothbard’s dismissal and Charles Koch’s involvement in his firing.
