What people are saying about this workshop:

“Interactive methodology is far preferable and informative than typical lectures. Keep it up!”

“It was very helpful to mingle with others interested in liberty – particularly with the optimistic presentations on virtue and communications. Liberty lovers do not get enough on presenting moral arguments, so seminars like this are essential.”

“Thank you for this training. I feel more equipped to fight for liberty and free enterprise!”
-Lars Lone of the Wyoming Policy Institute

“I enjoyed this day-long seminar very much. It was beneficial in that it lasted a full day and everyone there had plenty of opportunity to speak out, be heard and ask questions. It was highly interactive, which helps me to learn and remember better. The suggestions on how to change someone else’s views were highly beneficial. I appreciate the opportunity to have been here.”

“Today, my approach to contemporary problems has shifted from a facts only approach to a personalization approach. I have also gained a greater understanding of the free lunch myth and how taxes are a form of aggression.”

“I learned how to approach people who don’t spend their time studying politics or economics and have an effective conversation with them.”

“I learned how to better explain the truth behind “price gouging” when it occurs during catastrophes like hurricane Katrina. I also learned how to respond to the claim that “women earn 30% less than men for the same job”.”


On Saturday, December 1 from 9-5 PM in Des Moines, IA, Liberty on the Rocks will present its fourth and most advanced discussion and activity-driven economics session. Through group discussion, activities, and our featured speaker, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of economics and philosophy in addition to how to utilize these arguments when communicating with others in today’s battle for liberty.

The seminar will be immediately followed by a networking reception with complimentary appetizers and non-alcoholic drinks for attendees, instructors and our featured speaker of the day. Lunch will be served, and light snacks and drinks will be available throughout the day.

Tickets are $10. To RSVP, purchase your ticket(s) here
