Cocktail connoisseur, 2007 Ludwig von Mises Institute Fellow, economics Professor at Loyola University New Orleans and expert in drug policy, incarceration, music, culture, and the deductive study of human action spends an evening with Atlanta's Liberty on the Rocks crowd.
Does the free market incentivize privatized prisons to lock up individuals with big profit? We'll discuss historical contributing factors responsible for America having the world's highest national incarceration per capita including crony relationships between the "private" sector prison industry and government, the war on drugs, and influence of common law judicial tradition on the United States.
Hoist a few and lean on Dan for some laughs and a brainstorm on how young people in the Atlanta area can communicate these issues in simple terms and come up with ideas of how to participate in the progression of possible solutions through entrepreneurship, research, and organized activism.
When & Where
Liberty On the Rocks: Atlanta
We pledge to further the study and discussion of America’s founding principles, thus encouraging increased awareness, communication and action. Through our established local networks, leaders will work to unite, educate and activate supporters of freedom with the ultimate goal of enhancing their ability to share these enduring values with others.
The overall purpose of these liberty clubs is to establish a welcoming, inclusive environment where individuals are free to share ideas, gain and disseminate knowledge and to learn new opportunities for becoming better informed and involved. Establishing a social environment such as this is the first step towards creating a powerful group of individuals motivated to work together to promote freedom and individual liberty.
