Lawrence Reed to speak at Young America's Foundation's Road to Freedom Seminar

Start Thursday, July 18, 2013 9:00 AM

End Saturday, July 20, 2013 5:00 AM

FEE President, Lawrence Reed, will address attendees at the Young America's Foundation's Road to Freedom seminar, scheduled at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California.

President Ronald Reagan was influenced by a handful of great philosophers, including Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, Frank Meyer, Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, and Russell Kirk, who guided his economic policy which led to less government interference in the market place and more freedom for the average American during his administration.

Today, the free market approach has been cast aside. The mainstream media, college professors, and the Obama administration all advocate John Maynard Keynes' or Karl Marx's solution of using government spending to boost the economy. Students are rarely required to read or are even presented with a fair view of free market ideas.

At this Young America's Foundation program, participants will:

Compare the policies practiced and lessons learned by the Carter, Reagan, Bush and Obama administrations.
Explore the economists who most influenced Ronald Reagan.
Learn concrete strategies to communicate free market values to students on campus.
And more!
One past seminar attendee wrote, "I would definitely encourage anyone who wants to learn more about free market ideas, liberty, and Reagan's ideals to attend these seminars. They are enlightening and a definite must for young conservatives."

A highlight of the weekend will be a trip to Rancho del Cielo, Ronald Reagan's beloved ranch and home for nearly 25 years. It was at the Ranch that President Reagan inaugurated the longest peace-time economic expansion by signing the largest tax cuts in American history into law.  Young America's Foundation is preserving his ranch so new generations can learn more about President Reagan's ideas and lasting accomplishments.

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
