    Young America's Foundation & the Foundation for Economic Education to Launch "Cliches of Progressivism" Series

     

    HERNDON, VA- Young America's Foundation (YAF) is proud to partner with the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) to produce "Clichés of Progressivism," a series of insightful commentaries covering topics of free enterprise, income inequality, and limited government.

    Our society is inundated with half-truths and misconceptions about the economy in general and free enterprise in particular. The "Cliches of Progressivism" series is meant to equip students with the arguments necessary to inform debate and correct the record where bias and errors abound.

    Leaders and experts who support free enterprise and who understand the importance of fiscal responsibility and entrepreneurship will author the pieces.  A book will be featuring the best editorials in the series and will be released in 2015.  The opinion editorials/columns will be published weekly, beginning April 15, on the websites of both YAF and FEE: www.yaf.org and www.fee.org.

    "We are excited about our partnership with FEE on this project and hope to create momentum in the Conservative Movement to engage young people.  It is important to promote entrepreneurial ideas through projects like this in order to reach our nation's youth who don't hear these ideas in their classrooms," said YAF President Ron Robinson. 

    "This project is of great importance as it is our mission to seek to educate and inspire the next generation on the economic and ethical principles of a free society," said FEE President Lawrence Reed.

    • Are there instances where bias and errors abound - YOU BET. And you better believe it comes from BOTH sides, Left AND Right, of the debate. Please be aware of this fact.
