Description

As society opens up and economic activity returns, American history offers important lessons. Today we are still seeing how the massive federal reforms implemented from the top-down by experts and bureaucrats, like those put in place during the Great Depression, often harm rather than help the most vulnerable. How can we ensure our path forward restores opportunity and the pursuit of prosperity for all? With millions of Americans out of work, can government action restore employment faster than the free market? Join us as we offer a clear-eyed look at history and how its lessons apply to today.

This session is brought to you in partnership with Heritage’s Resource Bank Meeting, our annual conference for leaders of conservative movement organizations. Due to the global pandemic causing a cancellation of the in-person meeting, we are pleased to be able to offer this content in an online forum to a much broader audience.
