Event Details

The Atlas Network invites you to a panel on Cronyism and the Morality of Sound Money at the Penn Club of New York. It is commonly accepted that governments, and therefore central banks, should not pick favorites, but the Fed’s discretionary monetary policies do just that. Money is a moral matter; its trustworthiness impacts the value of wages, savings, and investments of all Americans. 

The reception begins at 6:00 p.m. with an open bar and hors d'oeuvres. The panel will run from 6:45 p.m. — 7:30 p.m., with a closing reception. 

This event is open to all. You are welcome to bring a guest and to forward the invitation to friends. Please RSVP with the names of your guests by Tuesday, July 7.

With questions, please contact Brittany Cobb at Brittany.Cobb@AtlasNetwork.org or at 973-826-2003.
