Join The Bastiat Society - Delaware Chapter for their 2nd Anniversary Event, featuring Lawrence W. Reed. Larry Reed became president of FEE in 2008, after serving as chairman of its board of trustees in the 1990s and both writing and speaking for FEE since the late 1970s. Prior to becoming FEE’s president, he served for twenty years as president of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy in Midland, Michigan. He also taught Economics full-time from 1977 to 1984 at Northwood University in Michigan and chaired its Department of Economics from 1982 to 1984. He holds a B.A. degree in Economics from Grove City College (1975) and an M.A. degree in History from Slippery Rock State University (1978), both in Pennsylvania. He holds two honorary doctorates, one from Central Michigan University (Public Administration—1993) and Northwood University (Laws—2008).

Mr. Reed presents the case for free trade from basic, free market principles and incorporates responses to protectionist arguments.

The Bastiat Society is a non profit, grassroots, international organization seeking to unite the business community and engage in thought provoking topics of economics and liberty without political agenda or rhetoric.

The Bastiat Society understands that the world is getting better because peaceful and profitable business creates wealth for everyone. They promote this fact by engaging the business community in a positive, non-political, and academic Society - a society of principled wealth creators. Their mission is to give those who create wealth and jobs the tools they need to defend them.

The event is open to public. It costs $25 for non-members.

If even destructive groups rely on this form of entrepreneurial organization, then hierarchy's time could truly be coming to an end.
