We often casually assume that it is natural for young people to be predominantly liberal. But this is wrong: liberal policies hurt the young worse than anyone else. They deprive young people of job opportunities, drive up the cost of health care, needlessly increase the price of housing, and saddle the young with trillions of dollars in debt.
One of Center of the American Experiment’s key themes in 2017 will be, why liberal policies are bad for the young. Among other things, this will be the topic of our quarterly lunch forum series. On Wednesday, February 22, Diana Furchtgott-Roth will kick off the series by talking about her book Disinherited: How Washington Is Betraying America’s Young. The forum will be at noon on the 22nd, a week from next Wednesday, at the Minneapolis Hilton.
If you live in or near the Twin Cities area, I strongly encourage you to attend. The Center’s lunch forum series has been a huge hit, with over 400 attending our last forum to hear Heather Mac Donald talk about The War On Cops. This year’s series should be equally informative, and equally explosive. You can go here to register, or call Samantha Peterson at 612.584.4559.
