Clint Bolick examines the assault on economic liberty brought about by the 19th century's Slaughter-House Cases. He explains how those cases nullified the privileges or immunities clause of the 14th Amendment and how the repercussions continue to manifest themselves today. Bolick offers hope for the future, however, in describing the current campaign to restore economic liberty as a fundamental civil right.
