Blinking Lights and the Western Conservative Summit

JUNE 07, 2013 by CARL OBERG

Our friends at Colorado Christian University have invited FEE to the Western Conservative Summit, July 26–28, 2013, to showcase FEE's unique focus on liberty, free-market economics, and the importance of character in creating and sustaining a free society. We are doing this through our new Blinking Lights Project. At the Blinking Lights webpage, you can explore that relationship; watch videos by FEE's president, Lawrence Reed, on the subject; and sign up to receive a free copy of the movie Amazing Grace, which explores how a small group of people, determined and driven by what is right, can make a massive difference in society.

FEE's launch of our Blinking Lights Project is a great opportunity for FEE to showcase that vital link between liberty and character. I hope to see you at the Western Conservative Summit or at any of our other summer events so we can discuss these issues and start making a difference. See you there.



Carl Oberg is the chief operating officer of the Foundation for Economic Education.

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.
