The guide softcover, pp. Mayer Is economic liberty the same as personal liberty? Mayer examines the history of the liberty of contract — the right of Americans to bargain over the terms of their own contracts — and shows how this right, our economic liberty, has been diminished by court decisions. Mayer, a professor of law and history at Capital University, traces the foundations of the liberty of contract and illustrates its demise.
The history Mayer presents begins at the onset of the 20th century with the Lochner decision.
In this decision, the Supreme Court ruled against a law that interfered with the freedom of people to bargain over the terms of their own contracts. The author also covers the New Deal revolution and the Fifth, 10th, and 14th amendments to the Constitution, discussing their relevance to economic liberty and property rights.

Liberty Of Contract: Rediscovering A Lost Constitutional Right by David N. Mayer
Long Live American Freedoms. Candy - PA. If history has taught us anything it is that during and after times of crisis civil liberties are limited at best and denied at worst.
As evidence may I point to the internment of the Japanese American citizens after the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, , the communist witch hunts under Joe Mccarthy's House Un-American Activities Committee during the Cold War and most recently the limitation of rights and personal freedoms under the Patriot Act including the acts of rendition,enhanced interrogation techniques and the internment of political prisoners indefinitely at Quantanamo Base Gitmo as well as the actions perpetrated at Abu Garaib.
It is during these times of crisis that we must be ever vigilant to the overstepping of authority and the defense of human rights and civil liberties.
