AFF- Dallas Hosted Amity Shlaes
Around 40 young professionals gathered at The Dram on Tuesday, March 5th to hear Amity Shlaes discuss her new book, Coolidge. Shlaes gave a thoughtful and humorous depiction of Calvin Coolidge, a president often overlooked. But Shlaes described him as a president who despised taxes and spending and who wasn’t afraid to say no. Although his frugality led him to be unpopular in Washington, he was able to grow the economy through significant income tax cuts. Shlaes told that crowd that the liberty movement needed another presidential role model to look to other than Ronald Reagan, and touted that Coolidge is most certainly the one.
The discussion was followed by a question and answer session and a networking happy hour. Guests left excited to purchase and read Coolidge.
