Richard Ebeling at University of The Bahamas, Wednesday, February 22, 2017

February 22, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


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”

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

The man of system, on the contrary, is apt to be very wise in his own conceit; and is often so enamoured with the supposed beauty of his own ideal plan of government, that he cannot suffer the smallest deviation from any part of it. He goes on to establish it completely and in all its parts, without any regard either to the great interests, or to the strong prejudices which may oppose it. He seems to imagine that he can arrange the different members of a great society with as much ease as the hand arranges the different pieces upon a chess-board. He does not consider that the pieces upon the chess-board have no other principle of motion besides that which the hand impresses upon them; but that, in the great chess-board of human society, every single piece has a principle of motion of its own, altogether different from that which the legislature might chuse to impress upon it. If those two principles coincide and act in the same direction, the game of human society will go on easily and harmoniously, and is very likely to be happy and successful. If they are opposite or different, the game will go on miserably, and the society must be at all times in the highest degree of disorder.Adam Smith
