Meet the Young Man Bringing Adam Smith and the Free Market to the Inner City
Brandon Loran Maxwell describes himself as “not your average political nerd.”
A former member of “one of the nation’s largest and most notorious Hispanic gangs,” Maxwell explained to TheBlaze how he is using his “turbulent gang and drug-ridden background” to reach inner city youth with the unique message of how the free market has revolutionized the world — and is the key to their future.
“The goal is to empower inner city youth by teaching them free market economics through industries they love and relate to,” he said.
Having written on the topic in publications from New York City to Los Angeles, Maxwell recently delivered a lecture titled “Hip Hop and Adam Smith” to a group of at-risk youth in Kansas City. Members of the audience all voluntarily came before 9:00 a.m. on their spring break to hear him speak.
