Second Annual Joan Thompson Memorial Freedom Lecture with Richard Ebeling

February 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us Tuesday, February 21, 2017 for a lecture by Richard Ebeling, BB & T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina at the British Colonial Hilton Hotel, One Bay Street, Nassau, Bahamas.

Topic: “The Zero-Sum World of Donald Trump”


What does the new Trump Administration mean for America and the rest of the world? Trump’s worldview is a mixture of old and new ideas that may threaten the global trend toward freedom and prosperity.

Dr. Ebeling was a favorite economist and lecturer of our founding president Joan Thompson, so it is fitting that he is the speaker for the Joan Thompson Memorial Freedom Lecture in her honour.

Joan Thompson (1927 – 2015)

Thought to Ponder

F. A. Hayek said that “the curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.” It would be good to recognize our limits about what we imagine we can design.
