2007 Policy Conference: Identity Crisis

The opening keynote speech at the 2007 Educause Policy Conference was delivered by Jim Harper, Director of Information Policy Studies at the Cato Institute. Through public policy debate, forums, and publications, the Cato Institute strives to broaden public access to government policy with particular emphasis on the role of limited government, individual liberty, and free markets. This speech, entitled "Identity Crisis: How Identification is Overused and Misunderstood", uses the REAL ID Act as a springboard for discussion about the need for competitive, responsive identification that protects individual privacy and civil liberties. This podcast has a runtime of approximately 40 minutes.
