Socialism Sucks: Drinking Their Way Through the Unfree World, with Benjamin Powell
"What is 'socialism'? And do countries that overindulge in it wake up with bad hangovers? You bet they do. Robert Lawson and Benjamin Powell give you the hair-of-the-dog cure. They provide a dose of political economy knowledge mixed with an understanding of the benefits of economic freedom, add a strong dash of humor, and top it off with a cold beer. Have a Bob & Ben Eye-Opener and you'll feel like (and live in a place where you can make) a million dollars!" (P.J. O'Rourke author of #1 New York Times bestseller Parliament of Whores)

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.
