The Global Liberty Institute presented its 2023 Liberty Award to Glenn C. Loury during a ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida on February 17, 2023.
The Liberty Award is the highest honor bestowed by the Global Liberty Institute and is reserved for an individual “who has made outstanding contributions to preserving and restoring personal and economic freedom and ensuring the free exchange of ideas throughout the world.” Joshua D. Rauh, Co-Director of the Global Liberty Institute and Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, and Scott W. Atlas, Co-Director of the Global Liberty Institute and the Robert Wesson Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, introduced and presented the award.
“Glenn Loury is among America’s leading critics writing on racial inequality, while recognizing the complexity of the issue,” said Atlas. “He has been one of the nation’s most compelling voices for pointing out the unique freedoms of America and the pathways to true equality offered by the nation, notwithstanding existing problems.”
