Second Annual Joan Thompson Memorial Freedom Lecture with Richard Ebeling – Feb 21, 2017

First Published: 2017-01-26

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.
