For George Reisman, objective law in support of laissez-faire capitalism is the socioeconomic system that must be taught, promoted, and defended to the teeth. Not only did he earn his PhD in Economics from New York University under the direction of Ludwig von Mises, he was also a student of Ayn Rand.

In partnership with his wife, psychologist Edith Packer, the Reismans created the Jefferson School of Philosophy, Economics, and Psychology. Together, they organized several conferences that featured Objectivist and Austrian lecturers including philosopher Leonard Peikoff, physicist Edward Teller, economists Hans Sennholz and Walter Williams, libertarian attorney Bernard Siegan, and psychologist Edwin Locke, whose goal setting theory is a testament to free will as the essential ingredient for human civilization.
