Event description

Description

Established one hundred years ago by future president Herbert Hoover at his alma mater, Stanford University, the Hoover Institution marks its centennial in 2019. In recognition of this momentous occasion, a lecture series entitled A Century of Ideas for a Free Society was launched in March 2019, to showcase the rigorous scholarship and research central to the institution’s mission and values: individual, economic, and political freedom; private enterprise; and limited, effective representative government. These timeless and fundamental values are derived from one hundred years of scholarship, the lessons of history, and a fundamental understanding of the nature of war, revolution, and peace.

A Century of Ideas for a Free Society will both address a historic perspective and provide a prospective look into important public policies that impact our society.

NOVEMBER 19

A Century of Ideas: Labor and Capital Market Policy: From Ideas to Actions over One Hundred Years

Nowhere are good economic ideas more important for growth and stability than in labor and capital markets. Enormous technological, political, and demographic shifts in the past one hundred years have changed what is feasible and what works in practice. Panelists will discuss how ideas about the roles of government and private enterprise have changed, how good ideas stressing economic freedom can be advanced into action, and the influence of globalization on the ability of governments to apply good ideas to capital flows and immigration.

Speakers: Caroline Hoxby, John Cochrane, George Shultz
