    Event Speakers

    Tyler Cowen

    Holbert L. Harris Chair of Economics at George Mason University

    Katherine Mangu-Ward

    Editor in Chief at Reason
    Restlessness, ambition, and innovation are key American traits. But today, Americans are working harder than ever to avoid change.  In The Complacent Class (St. Martin’s Press, February 2017), a follow-up to the New York Times best-selling book The Great Stagnation, Tyler Cowen explores our desire to become more insulated, comfortable, and accepting of the status quo.  Americans are moving less, starting fewer businesses, marrying people more like ourselves, and choosing as much as we can based on algorithms that wall us off from anything that might be too new or different. As a result, we could see a version of America that is more segregated, more unequal, and no longer the leader of tomorrow’s greatest achievements.
    Please join the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a live interview with Reason‘s  Katherine Mangu-Ward and Tyler Cowen on this phenomenon and what it means for the future of politics, the economy, and the very foundation of our culture. According to Malcolm Gladwell, “His brilliant new book…has been on my nightstand after I devoured it in one sitting. I am at round-the-clock Cowen saturation right now.”
    Copies of the book will be available for sale after the discussion. For questions, please contact Martha Anderson at manderson@mercatus.gmu.edu. To read more about the book or pre-order a copy, visit complacentclass.com.

Hayek Speaker Series: Immigration & Freedom

SIGN UP FOR THE LATEST FROM THE F. A. HAYEK PROGRAM
4:00pm – 5:30pm

Event Speakers

Chandran Kukathas 

Chair in Political Theory and Head of Department, the London School of Economics and Political Science
State control over immigration is often taken for granted in today’s policy discussions. Many see the value in welcoming highly skilled and wealthy immigrants but want to restrict the migration of others. Yet who is really affected by immigration laws aimed at keeping out unwanted migrants? Can a free society really limit the movement and activities of foreigners within its borders without impacting the freedoms of its own citizens?
Please join the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a keynote lecture with Professor Chandran Kukathas on the impact that immigration law has on citizens. Kukathas’ work examines the burden and limitations that strict immigration laws place on citizens.
For questions, please contact Jennings Kuzmier at jkuzmier@mercatus.gmu.edu.
