(p.1) Introduction
The Conservative Case for Class Actions

Brian T. Fitzpatrick

University of Chicago Press

As Milton Friedman reminded listeners long ago, there is sometimes a divergence between the interests of U.S. Chamber of Commerce and conservative and libertarian principles. This chapter defines conservative and libertarian principles as those associated with the “Chicago School” and “Austrian School” of economics and suggests that class action lawsuits is yet another example of this divergence.

Keywords:   Milton Friedman, conservative, libertarian, Chamber of Commerce, class action, Chicago School, Austrian School
