Young Americans for Liberty presents Dr. Thomas E. Woods Speaks at UW-Madison.
When: 7:00pm January 26th
Where: 3650 Humanities Building
In this lecture, NY Times bestselling author Dr. Thomas E. Woods will explain why practically everything you’ve been taught about government, the economy, and the Great Depression is wrong—the product of pro–government propaganda.
Dr. Woods will challenge myths surrounding the Great Depression and other government interventions into the economy, making the case that these interventions often make things worse. He argues that we need free markets because they gave us our former wealth and prosperity.
In addition, Dr. Woods will show that current government spending is unsustainable and that it is impossible for the government to keep its promises for entitlements. He will also scrutinize the Federal Reserve, explaining how it causes and exacerbates problems while allowing politicians to engage in endless wars and limitless spending.
Now is the time to reevaluate the economic beliefs that have led us to our current situation and to try different solutions rather than simply putting more effort behind failed policies. This lecture will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
This event is open to the public. Admission is free.
