Mises Meetup in Colorado Springs: The Post-Covid World
August 21, 2021Colorado Springs, Colorado
Join Jeff Deist, Ryan McMaken, and special guest John Tamny of FreedomWorks for a meetup in Colorado Springs on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
Our topic is assessing the new post-Covid world. After more than a year of unprecedented state intervention in our private lives, have Americans accepted a grim "new normal"? How bad is the post-Covid economy, from shortages of goods and workers to inflation to rent moratoriums? Will all the monetary and fiscal stimulus really work? Was Covid merely the excuse to justify new police powers under the guise of public heath—powers politicians will use to impose draconian controls in the future? Does the varied response to the virus, across nations and among US states, show the path to a far more decentralized political future? Or will Covid usher in the Great Reset, an attempt to create top down rule by elites?
John Tamny will present a keynote talk on his new book When Politicians Panicked: The New Coronavirus, Expert Opinions, and a Tragic Lapse of Reason. This is a landmark work chronicling the profound ignorance and malfeasance of policy makers at all levels during 2020, and we'll have copies on hand for Mr. Tamny to sign.
We'll meet at the lovely Antlers Hotel, 4 South Cascade Ave, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. mountain time. The registration fee for Mises Members is $45 and includes lunch and in-depth discussion. Nonmembers can register for $65.
