Special Meeting: March 23, Russ Roberts

The Bastiat Society is partnering with the Initiative for Public Choice & Market Process at the College of Charleston in hosting Dr. Russell Roberts on March 23 at the College.

Russell Roberts is Professor of Economics at George Mason University and the J. Fish and Lillian F. Smith Distinguished Scholar at the Mercatus Center, and a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. His latest book is The Price of Everything: A Parable of Possibility and Prosperity (Princeton University Press, 2008). Told in the form of a novel, it's the story of how prosperity is created and sustained, and the unseen order and harmony that shape our daily lives.

We hope you can attend. Professor Roberts will be speaking on:

"Crony Capitalism vs. Real Capitalism:
Lessons from the Financial Crisis"

3:30 Wachovia Auditorium on the College campus

This event is part of Adam Smith Week at the College of Charleston. More events and information can be found here.
