Free

Join us Wednesday, February 22, 2016 for a lecture by Richard Ebeling, BB & T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina

Topic: “Globalization and the Free Society”

Summary:
Recent political events in Europe, the United States and many other nations suggest a trend away from the more “open world” of the last several decades. The rise of economic nationalism and closed borders threatens to slow humanity’s progress toward both more personal freedom and growing prosperity for too many still living in poverty. Liberty and prosperity requires free trade and economic liberalism.

Dr. Ebeling is no stranger to The Bahamas, The Nassau Institute or the University of The Bahamas.

The presentation will take place in lecture hall at the Harry C. Moore Library at the University of The Bahamas starting at 6:30pm.

The event is free.

Thought to Ponder

Warriors and despots are generally bad economists and they instinctively carry their ideas of force and violence into the civil politics of their governments. Free trade is a principle which recognizes the paramount importance of individual action.Richard Cobden
