And, for the MAIN EVENT…We are excited to have Dr. Paul Prentice as our featured guest.  Dr. Prentice has agreed to share with us one of his Free Markets classes (including powerpoint presentation) covering material he teaches at various think tanks, college campuses, and at various civic forums .  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about the Fed, monetary policy, and its economic costs.

Dr. Prentice has a unique perspective as a “reformed” Keynesian turned “Austrian,” having run the gamut politically from serving as the Chief Macroeconomist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture under Presidents Carter AND Reagan, and as a visiting scholar at the U.S. Department of Treasury under President Clinton.  He is the president of the Pikes Peak Economic Club, Fellow at the Centennial Institute, Senior Fellow at the Independence Institute, board member of the Limited Government Forum, and Adjunct Scholar with the Ludwig von Mises Institute.  For additional details about our guest, please visit:

August 7th Free Markets Class in Castle Rock!

Dr. Paul Prentice, a “free markets” economist and fellow at the Independence Institute, will be presenting Part I of his 3 part series, Sunday, August 7th in Castle Rock.

Details here:

This three part course is an excellent primer on Austrian economics, which we will likely be hearing more about (with the catastrophic failure of Keynesian economics now in play globally).

We are pleased to be hosting Dr. Prentice for the third part of the series, this fall, and will keep you posted as to where and when the next session will be held.

Keynesian vs. Austrian Economics…

You’re invited to join us as we celebrate Liberty and fellowship with other liberty lovers on July 26th, 5:30pm to 7:30pm at The Dublin House (1850 Dominion Way, Colorado Springs) enjoying Tavern Style Politics and Activism in the Tradition of our Founding Fathers.

The evening’s entertainment will include the infamous 30 second soapbox, trivia and awesome happy hour deals.  The night’s topic : Keynesian vs Austrian Economics.

Dr. Paul Prentice will present the Keynesian Economic Theory while Justin Longo will present the Austrian Economic Theory.   After brief descriptions/presentations of the theories we will open up the floor to Q & A which promises to be a lively discussion in a tavern style manner.  So come on out and join in the discussion . You won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Paul Prentice earned a Ph.D. in Agricultural Economics at the University of Connecticut. Paul served under President Ronald Reagan, as Chief Macroeconomist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  Paul is active in the arena of economic liberty, serving on the Board of Directors of the Limited Government Forum in Colorado Springs, where he helps direct their “Economic and Civic Literacy Project” and continues to develop and present the condensed version of Free People, Free Markets. In 2008, Dr. Prentice was appointed to the position of Adjunct Faculty at the Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Justin Longo graduated twice from George Mason University. In 2004 with a BS in Management and again in 2007 with a BS in Economics. It was at George Mason where Justin fell in love with economics, particularly the Austrian school. Currently, he works full time for the Independence Institute as the web guy who writes a lot. Justin also co-owns and edits the news website, and continues to help out with Liberty on the Rocks, the social networking organization he helped co-found.

Colorado Springs LOTR events / discussions can cover subjects on just about every liberty-oriented topic there is.  We encourage participation  and the sharing of ideas . So come on out to happy hour, enjoy a beer and join us. The purpose is to get us talking to each other about our viewpoints on different topics, so we may become better aware of what we believe and why, and what we have no opinion on (yet!). There is no doubt about it – this will be the most fun you’ve ever had while learning at the same time!

Liberty on the Rocks is THE place to meet others interested in free market and/or liberty-oriented principles. It is also the happy hour for you if you’re interested in getting better informed or involved in the liberty movement.
