Economics in One Lesson: High-School Seminar in Tennessee (Sponsored by Tennessee Liberty Alliance)
Join Glenn "Kane" Jacobs and faculty of the Mises Institute: Bob Murphy, Doug French, Jeff Tucker for this high-school seminar sponsored by Tennessee Liberty Alliance, in memory of Fred Childress. This event is open to students and their chaperones in public, private, and homeschool high schools.
The Mises Institute educates young students through our website and publications. Here is a half-day seminar just for high-school students -- with a particular focus on homeschoolers.
There is no charge at all for this event, but you must register in advance. It does provide an excellent introduction to the whole field of economics and why it matters to understand history and society and the ups and downs of civilization itself. Without economic understanding, we are left without a critical tool for understanding vast amounts of the social sciences.
The high-school years are the perfect time to begin to introduce economic logic as a discipline. But too often, economics is presented as if it has nothing to do with real life. In fact, it is important to every area of life, as this seminar will show.
Come join us to discover the theory and application of critical concepts in economics.
