TFAS Adds Regional Seminar Series On The Economy To Lineup Of Educational Programs

//////////////////////

TFAS has launched a new regional seminar series called “What’s at Stake: The American Economy at a Crossroads.” The first session was held in Dallas Sept. 17, and will be followed by a second session on Oct. 5 in New York. Future seminars are also in the works for Chicago and Milwaukee. Alumni, supporters and friends of TFAS are encouraged to attend the sessions, which are free to the public.

“These types of events make it possible for us to reach leaders across the country, providing them with education in the concepts of freedom and free markets,” said Executive Vice President Steve Slattery. “We’re looking forward to seeing the familiar faces of our alumni and supporters and hopefully some new people as well.”

The first seminar in Dallas was an evening reception that featured presentations by Professor Brad Thompson of Clemson University’s Institute for the Study of Capitalism and Professor Michael Cox of Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business. Thompson discussed “The Moral Foundations of Capitalism,” while Cox gave remarks entitled  “Which Way, America? Economic Freedom or the Road to Serfdom?”

Cox will join TFAS again in New York along with TFAS Senior Scholar Jim Otteson of Yeshiva University, for a lunchtime session held at the Harvard Club. For more information or to register, CLICK HERE.
