Conventional wisdom holds that business and government are enemies, each trying to restrain the other’s power. In fact, businesses have always taken advantage of government authority to stifle competition and protect their own profits. The people who really lose under such an arrangement are consumers, taxpayers and start-up entrepreneurs.
Join America’s Future Foundation and the Acton Institute as we welcome the one and only Matt Kibbe! In this lecture, Kibbe will explore how crony capitalism empowers government-granted monopolies, props up inefficient and unprofitable companies with subsidies, and stifles new ideas and market innovation. Following the lecture, we’ll open it up for discussion and Q&A.
Please join us for a night of discussion and networking. Plus: register in advance and recieve a free drink! RSVP now.
