Description

Times are tough for market liberalism as calls to empower Washington to manage the economy continue to grow. Whether it’s protecting favored industries with subsidies, government loans, and preferential tax treatment or targeting specific industries with increased regulation or even price controls—economic nationalism is garnering favor from across the political spectrum. Efforts to empower politicians and bureaucrats to shape a nation’s economy should be resisted. American families and businesses are best able to make decisions for themselves through markets bound by institutions like the rule of law and property rights. Evidence shows that long-term well-being and prosperity are enhanced by expanding economic freedom, not by centralizing power. Please join us for a lecture on this timely and important issue.
