Road to Freedom Seminar: Communicating Free Enterprise to the Next Generation
July 18, 2013
Full-time college students are invited to apply for Young
America's Foundation's Road to Freedom Seminar, scheduled at the
Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, California, July 18 to 20,
President Ronald Reagan was influenced by a handful of free
market proponents, including Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman,
Frank Meyer, Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, and Russell Kirk, who
guided his economic policy which led to less government
interference in the market place and more freedom for the average
American during his administration.
Today, the free market approach has been cast aside. The
mainstream media, college professors, and the Obama administration
all advocate John Maynard Keynes' or Karl Marx's solution of using
government spending to boost the economy. Students are rarely
required to read or are even presented with a fair view of free
At this Young America's Foundation program, participants
- Compare the policies practiced and lessons learned by the
Carter, Reagan, Bush and Obama administrations.
- Explore the economists who most influenced Ronald Reagan.
- Learn concrete strategies to communicate free market values to
students on campus.
- And more!
One past seminar attendee wrote, "I would definitely encourage
anyone who wants to learn more about free market ideas, liberty,
and Reagan's ideals to attend these seminars. They are enlightening
and a definite must for young conservatives."
A highlight of the weekend will be a trip to Rancho del Cielo,
Ronald Reagan's beloved ranch and home for nearly 25 years. It was
at the Ranch that President Reagan inaugurated the longest
peace-time economic expansion by signing the largest tax cuts in
American history into law. Young America's Foundation is
preserving his ranch so new generations can learn more about
President Reagan's ideas and lasting accomplishments.
