Tom Palmer, Oxford University PhD, is an internationally known advocate for the advancement of liberty and free markets throughout the world. Seen on national television programs, read in prestigious journals, and sought after around the world as a speaker, Palmer is among the most knowledgeable experts on classical liberal/libertarian thought, Constitutional history, globalization, and economic studies. He was also a plaintiff in District of Columbia v. Heller in which the Supreme Court recently overturned the D.C. ban on handguns. Much of Tom’s time is spent meeting with and supporting groups and individuals in countries where individual and economic liberty are threatened or non-existent. Within the past few years, Tom has traveled to China, Malaysia, Afghanistan, Viet Nam, Kyrgyzstan, Indonesia, India, Russia and The Philippines to work with lovers of freedom. He will come to Vermont in December shortly after returning from a planned five day visit to North Korea.
