Event Details

Prof. Greve will speak on the theme of his most recent book, The Upside-Down Constitution (Harvard University Press, 2012), in which he argues that the original constitutional intent of competitive federalism has been gradually supplanted by a de facto cartel arrangement in which special interests and public actors cooperate to expand the public sector at all levels while eroding political accountability and individual liberty.


In addition to The Upside-Down Constitution, Prof. Greve is the author of Real Federalism: Why It Matters, How It Could Happen (1999); and Harm-less Lawsuits? What's Wrong With Consumer Class Actions (2005).  He is also the co-editor, with Richard A. Epstein, of Competition Laws in Conflict: Antitrust Jurisdiction in the Global Economy (2004) and Federal Preemption: States' Powers, National Interests (2007), and a frequent contributor to the Liberty Law Blog.


Prior to joining the faculty at GMU, Prof. Greve was the John G. Searle Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute for more than a decade.  In 1989 he co-founded, and until 2000 directed, the Center for Individual Rights, a public interest law firm.  He currently chairs the board of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.  Prof. Greve holds a Ph.D in government from Cornell University, and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Hamburg.
