We spoke with Mark Skousen, founder of FreedomFest. Mark has been teaching courses at California Based Chapman University, which has become a leading institution of higher learning. It was gratifying to hear that the student body is predisposed to free markets and free thought, unlike so much of academia today. Mark contrasted them with his students at Mercy College in New York who were much more likely to support government programs and intervention in the marketplace. Perhaps there’s hope.
This year’s FreedomFest is also shaping up nicely. More debates are on tap and the Moore-Krugman debate is attracting quite a bit of attention. It promises to be the highlight of the event. We can’t wait to see it and Mark will be the moderator. It will be the shoot-out at the Mises Corral.
