gI 87455 nor%20logo Libertarian Minds Converge on FreedomFest 2014,July 9 12 in Las Vegas
Midland, Michigan (PRWEB) July 07, 2014

It’s no surprise that faculty and leadership from one of the country’s most notable free-market, free-enterprise business schools, Northwood University, play an integral role at what has been dubbed as “the greatest libertarian show on earth,” sharing their views and thought leadership throughout a three-day forum known as FreedomFest 2014.

Held July 9-12 in Las Vegas, this year’s FreedomFest conference gives free minds the opportunity to meet and celebrate “great books, great ideas and great thinkers,” during an intense independent, egalitarian, non-partisan forum made up of panel discussions and featuring speakers from all walks of life and professions.

This year, Northwood University’s President Keith A. Pretty, Vice President of Strategic and Corporate Alliances and the Fry Endowed Professor of Economics Timothy G. Nash, and Economics Professor Richard Ebeling will share their unique views in various breakout sessions, joining many other notable names and faces in libertarian thought on the speakers’ platform.

Founded in 2002, the annual FreedomFest event invites the “best and brightest” from around the world to “talk, strategize, socialize and celebrate liberty,” in such areas as science, philosophy, economics, health, sports, technology, business, religion, law and politics. This is Midland, Michigan-based Northwood University’s second year as a key participant in this unique conference.

On Thursday, July 10, 9-9:30 a.m., Pretty will share his thoughts during a panel discussion, “Is the West in Moral Progress or Decline.” Moderated by FreedomFest founder and producer Mark Skousen, the panel also includes Michael Shermer, editor in chief of Skeptic magazine, and FreedomFest 2014 keynote speakers Michael Medved of The Michael Medved Show and Charles Murray of the American Enterprise Institute. This session will cover debated subjects within the moral fabric of society, such as abortion, business taxation and more.

Northwood University economists Nash and Ebeling will participate in two sessions. Nash moderates the first, “The World’s Best Economics Professors,” on Saturday, July 12, 10:30-11:20 a.m., featuring Ebeling as a panelist. During this forum, Nash, Ebeling and otherswill discuss what made, and still makes, the U.S. economy great and why it continues to grow, drawing comparisons to other global economies. The session also will explore the greatest challenges and opportunities faced by these economies. Other panelists include FreedomFest 2014 keynote speaker Ken Elzinga of University of Virginia, Sean Flynn of Scripps College and Ken Schoolland of Hawaii Pacific University.

In their final forum, Ebeling and Nash provide their unique thought leadership regarding the topic: “Can Capitalism and the American Dream Survive?” on Saturday, 1:30-2:20 p.m.

“We will focus on the belief that the American Dream is still alive, but that current tax and fiscal policy puts it in crisis, leaving several cities, including Detroit, in financial distress,” Nash explains. “One thing that hasn’t come back in this economy is jobs, so the economy isn’t recovering as it should because businesses are afraid the economy is going to contract.”

Pretty, Nash and Ebeling are available to discuss these issues in greater detail prior to FreedomFest 2014 and also during the event in Las Vegas. To arrange an interview, please contact Bethany Hilt of Falls Communications, 216.696.0229, bhilt(at)fallscommunications(dot)com.
