Event Details

Debaters: Winston Elliot, Barbara Elliot, TedMcAllister, Michael DeWilde, Paul Murphy, Noreen Myers

A wrenching recession and lackluster recovery have sparked renewed debate over the business and moral efficacy of the free-market economy. What can the president and Congress really do? Is more or less regulation needed? What are the short- and long-term effects of the U.S. budget deficit? How can the finance sector get back on solid ground? Will the decline of the European Union and economic distress worldwide put U.S. economic recovery on a slippery footing? Who seems to be winning the debate over the government’s involvement in the U.S. economy, progressive Democrats or conservative Republicans? This debate will lay bare the raw issues before the American public.

The Hauenstein Center at Grand Valley State University

Inspired by Ralph Hauenstein, we seek to provide a platform for emerging leaders in all three major sectors of public life – business, government, and nonprofit.  We promote civic engagement that (1) honors the Founders’ vision of a constitutional republic; (2) builds on existing democratic institutions that promote justice, freedom, opportunity, sustainable prosperity, and the rule of law; and (3) envisions the possibilities for creating better communities.
