May 11, 2020 WEBINAR: Lessons from the Great Depression: The Impact of Government Programs on "The Forgotten Man"
As society opens up and economic activity returns, American history offers important lessons.
Monday, May 11, 2020
11:00 am - 12:00 pm
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.
