I thought I’d plug the summer seminars of the Foundation for Economic Education, one of the long-time U.S. free-market think tanks which is now moving down from its traditional digs in Irvington-on-Hudson, N.Y. to Atlanta, where I live.
FEE has three-day seminars for both high-school and college students. The high-school student seminars are:
- Anything Peaceful
- Free the World
- Intro to the Real World
And the college student seminars are:
- Who Will Build the Roads? and Other Questions About Free Societies
- Going Green: Free Market Environmentalism
- Liberty, the Original Trendsetter
- The True Costs of War
- Made in China: Economic Development
- Communicating Liberty
- Rebels with a Cause
(None of this is to detract from the excellent summer seminars run by the Institute for Humane Studies, which are excellent and which I’ve participated in a lot, both as a student and as faculty. I met my wife at one of those. Check out those too.)
These seminars are in various cities around the country: Seattle; Prescott, Ariz.; St. Louis; Clemson, S.C.; Atlanta; and Rome, Ga.
Please tell your friends among high-school and college students who are interested in liberty. Applications for seminars close March 31. Now for the self-serving part: If you apply, please write “Sasha Volokh” as your reference! This will entitle me to some very modest rewards.
