On Wednesday, February 22, 2017, Richard Ebeling, Ph.,D., BB & T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina presented a lecture “Globalization and the Free Society” at the University of The Bahamas
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 took place in lecture hall at the Harry C. Moore Library at the University of The Bahamas. Admission was free.
This event would not have been possible without the generous support of:
