How Government Destroys Private Wealth: The Mises Circle in Houston
January 22, 2011 - 8:30 AM to 3:00 PMHilton Houston Post Oak
Sponsored by Jeremy Davis
Through regulations, taxation, inflation of the money supply, trade restrictions, and tethers on private associations, government is nothing but a massive drain on prosperity. The situation has become deeply dangerous for the future of freedom in this country, with young people unable to find jobs, opportunities being destroyed in sector after sector, banks and corporations living on the dole, and so many regulations that we are iiving under something nearly as egregious as a Soviet-style central plan.
Our speakers will address the implications and what to do about it. They will discuss free enterprise: words that Obama seems to have difficulty uttering to say nothing of practicing.
