Free markets and poverty panel at IPI

ipi_logo-152x100I’ll be part of a panel discussion in Chicago at the Illinois Policy Institute on Wednesday, December 9. Here is the announcement, from IPI’s site:

“You’re invited to join us on Wednesday, December 9 for cocktails, appetizers, engaging discussion, and some good old-fashioned holiday cheer! We’ll be talking about how free markets help the poor — as well as society in general — with a panel of distinguished speakers:

* Tim Probasco, Vice President, Central Region, Opportunity International
* Dr. Stephen Hicks, Executive Director, The Center for Ethics and Entrepreneurship
* Paul Wormley, Board Member, The One Acre Fund

You’ll hear about the power of entrepreneurship, how citizen leaders are changing lives in Africa, the power of microloans to help the world’s poor, and more. We even have a special musical guest (and no, it’s not Jerry Agar and John Tillman singing ‘Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.’ We promise.)
