CO Springs Economics Training Wrap Up

On Saturday, March 31st, Liberty on the Rocks was pleased to host Jeff Proctor of the Charles Koch Institute who presented economics lessons for free market advocates in Colorado Springs.

On a most beautiful Saturday in the beginning of spring, we were pleased to have 25 liberty-lovers join us for a 5-hour economics session. It wasn’t quite the 60+ we had in Denver a month beforehand, but weather was definitely a culprit (being that it was too nice to stay indoors)!

Throughout this five hour session attendees participated in a number of educational activities and delved into some in-depth group discussion. Whether it was learning the ins and outs of price creation or gaining a better understanding for how the free market works, attendees not only strengthened their knowledge, they also enhanced the size of their network while enjoying themselves in the process!

In addition to debunking some of the arguments made in the Story of Broke (a project of the horribly inaccurate Story of Stuff), we also hosted a panel at the end of the session that allowed attendees to ask all the questions their hearts desired – and boy did they have questions! Participants on the panel included our facilitator Jeff Proctor, Dr. Paul Prentice of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute, Professor Joshua Dunn of UCCS, and Justin Longo of the Independence Institute. With this great line-up, it was no surprise that even after 45-minutes of Q & A participants stuck around for another hour and a half to mingle one-on-one with the days instructors and panelists. Overall, it was a great success! This was not only indicated by the lively discussions and enthusiasm for the activities, but from the positive and encouraging comments that followed.

We hope to follow this last session with another in the coming months. Possible location: Louisville, CO.
