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.

For centuries, hierarchical models dominated human organizations. Kings, warlords, and emperors could rally groups--but also oppress them. Non-hierarchical forms of organization, though, are increasingly defining our lives. It's no secret how this shift has benefited out social lives, including dating, and it's becoming more commonplace even in the corporate world. But it has also now come even to organizations bent on domination rather than human flourishing, as the Islamic State shows. If even destructive groups rely on this form of entrepreneurial organization, then hierarchy's time could truly be coming to an end.
