Libertarian calendar for September

30 Sep



*********************************************************************************
September 30
Washington DC

Book Forum

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 12:00PM

Featuring the author Todd Zywicki, Professor, George Mason University School of Law; with comments by Anthony Yezer, Professor, Department of Economics, George Washington University. Moderated by Mark Calabria, Director, Financial Regulation Studies, Cato Institute.

Why do people borrow? An attempt to live beyond their means or income smoothing that accompanies growing prosperity? Consumer Credit and the American Economy examines the economics, behavioral science, sociology, history, law, and regulation of consumer credit in the United States. The authors look at why Americans use credit and the implications for both the American economy and government regulation. With the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by the Dodd-Frank Act, spreading its wings, there is perhaps no better time to have an in-depth discussion about the past and future of consumer credit. This panel features some of the leading experts in consumer financial regulation, who have served as both regulators and scholars.

This event is being co-sponsored by the Federalist Society.

Juche Strong at Cato

8 Apr
The Cato Institute invites you to attend a special documentary screening

Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.

Juche Strong:
A Dialogue on the Posturing and
Propaganda of North Korea

 
Featuring
Rob Montz
Director, Juche Strong

and
Doug Bandow
Senior Fellow, Cato Institute

moderated by
Caleb O. Brown
Director of Multimedia, Cato Institute

 

International observers have long predicted the collapse of North Korea; with a totalitarian government, failed economy, and few friends in the international community, there seems little reason to expect otherwise. Yet, the Kim regime persists — but why? In Juche Strong, director Rob Montz examines the propaganda apparatus that exists in North Korea, the underlying Juche philosophy of national “self-reliance” that fuels it, and the pivotal role it plays in the continued existence of the secretive country. Montz argues that a collective sense of purpose instilled by cradle-to-grave propaganda has been key to sustaining the country, and has created a quasi-religious fervor around the Kim dynasty that persists even as North Koreans suffer under the brutal regime.

Can North Korea continue indefinitely in this fashion? If so, what policies should the U.S. consider as North Korea strives to develop its nuclear program? How should the U.S. respond when North Korean leaders threaten aggression? Please join us for a screening of this documentary and a discussion of these fascinating issues.
