The Challenge of Liberty Summer Seminars for Students
College: Colorado Springs, CO • June 17-21
College: Berkeley, CA • July 15-19
High School: Oakland, CA • July 22-26
Few students have the opportunity to learn the central ethical and economic principles of free markets and free societies. Yet these principles are essential for understanding, appreciating, and preparing them for the world they will soon enter. They need the inspirational vision of liberty and the intellectual ammo to share the message with their peers. High school and college students are now encouraged to apply for the Independent Institute’s special, upcoming Challenge of Liberty Summer Seminars.
These five-day seminars of lectures, readings, and small group discussion teach students what economics is, how it affects their lives, and how understanding it can help them achieve better lives for themselves, their communities, and the world at large. Informative, inspiring, and fun. the curriculum will include ethics and the rise of liberty in the West, public choice and “Austrian School” economics, and history of the U.S., and such topics as money and banking, taxation, free trade and globalization, healthcare, charity and the welfare state, regulation and deregulation, war and peace, education, the environment, monopoly and competition, and much more.
