Tea Party Calendar for December

December 3
Washington, DC

The Great Escape: Health, Wealth, and the Origins of Inequality

Princeton University Press, 2013

Book Forum

December 3, 2013 12:00PM

Hayek Auditorium
Featuring the author Angus Deaton, Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of Economic and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs & Economics Department, Princeton University; with comments by Charles Kenny, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development; moderated by Ian Vasquez, Director, Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, Cato Institute.

In a process that began some 250 years ago, most of humanity has managed a great escape from grinding poverty and early death that characterized its existence for thousands of years. Professor Angus Deaton will describe the dramatic scope and speed of that progress, why we are living longer, healthier lives, and how progress has created inequalities that can have positive or negative impacts. He will also discuss measures rich countries can take to help the world’s poor, including reducing foreign aid, which has been ineffective and often harmful. Charles Kenny will provide comments based on his own research on global improvements in human well-being.

December 4

Oxford, GA
How Ayn Rand can end Big Government.
What: A student talk with Yaron Brook.

Where: Emory University extended campus at Oxford College,
810 Whatcoat St,
Oxford, GA, 30054.
Tarbutton Performing Arts Center, Room 28

             6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

In this lecture, Dr. Brook offers a no-holds-barred defense of laissez-faire capitalism and the philosophy of Ayn Rand. He calls for a Free Market Revolution in the way people think about markets and about the central activity that defines market activity: the pursuit of profit. Brook argues that Rand’s philosophy of rational self-interest holds the solution to America’s political and economic ills, including the debt crisis, looming inflation, and the swelling entitlement state.
