Liberty and Ethics Center Receives Grant from Koch Foundation

October 7, 2013

The Liberty and Ethics Center at Lindenwood University has received a $7000 grant from the Charles Koch Foundation to fund a spring seminar in economic federalism: "Is Government the Problem?"

The seminar will be held March 21-23, 2014, on the campus of Lindenwood University in St. Charles.

“Primary to our discussion will be the possibility that negative feelings about capitalism are actually caused by the state trying to make markets develop faster than what can spontaneously occur,” said Rachel Douchant, director of the Liberty and Ethics Center. “Speakers will address both questions of theory and practice, dealing with the cultural outcomes we value and why, as well as particular instances of intervention into the market, such as subsidies, the federal highway system, the Federal Reserve, and others.”

The keynote speaker is Robert Higgs, economic historian, acclaimed author of Crisis and Leviathan, and senior fellow at the Independent Institute.
