Video: Suffer No Fools — The Walter Williams Story

Written by Gary North on February 3, 2015

Walter Williams teaches economics at George Mason University.

In his newspaper columns — you remember newspapers, I hope — he has made famous this line: “Go to the head of the class.”

Back in the mid-1970’s, he and I were part of a summer program sponsored by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute: “The Role of Business in Society.” For a week, a group of us would lecture to high school teachers. The presentations were made at a regional university. This was free for the teachers, and we got paid . . . eventually.

My favorite line of his was this: “When I married my wife, I discriminated against all other women.”

In 2014, the Free to Choose Network did a documentary on him. I recommend that you watch it.

He is a gracious man. Even if you do not finish watching this video, he has made you a generous offer. To take advantage of it, click here.

Here is the video. Note: if you use Firefox, disable HD. Otherwise, there are buffering problems: lock-ups. It works fine with Chrome. I don’t know about Internet Explorer.
