Evening at FEE: Why Socialism Fails, with Tsvetelin Tsonevski

Start Saturday, March 08, 2014 6:30 PM

End Saturday, March 08, 2014 9:30 PM

Join us in Irvington, NY for An Evening at FEE on Saturday, March 8 to hear Tsvetelin Tsonevski discuss "Why Socialism Fails.”

Growing up on the other side of the "Iron Curtain," Tsvet had the opportunity to experience personally the reality of socialism, which failed to deliver economic prosperity to the people of Eastern Europe. Combining personal anecdotes and Austrian economics—particularly Ludwig von Mises’s economic calculation argument—Tsonevski explores whether this is an accidental or a systematic failure.

Tsvet Tsonevski joined the free-market community first as a “Social Change” analyst at the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation in Washington, DC and then as a research coordinator at the Institute for Humane Studies in Arlington, VA. From 2010 through 2013, he was the director of academic affairs at FEE. Currently, Tsvet directs student programs for The Independent Institute in Oakland, CA. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Institute for Market Economics and the editor of the first edition of Ludwig von Mises's Human Action in Bulgarian.

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
