I’ll be speaking tomorrow in Chicago at the FMRS event, along with Matt Kibbe (President and Chief Community Organizer, Free the People) and Barbara Kolm (President, Friedrich A. v. Hayek Institute). The event is sponsored by the Austrian Economics Center, and its theme is this:
The 2017 FMRS brings together leading business people, outstanding scholars, and policy experts to discuss the aftermath of two historic events: Great Britain’s decision to leave the European Union and the election of Donald J. Trump as president of the United States of America.
Europe’s political elite as a whole was convinced the so-called Brexit could not happen. Deemed to be impossible until the very day of the election, people were shocked to see President Trump’s victory. FMRS speakers will focus on the consequences these events may bring to free trade and free movement of people. Moreover, they will discuss whether we are witnessing a popular uprising against political elites.
Registration and location information is here.
