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 CompleteColorado.com, and continues to help out with Liberty on the Rocks, the social networking organization he helped co-found.
