    Default Contra Krugman: Demolishing the Economic Myths of the 2016 Election

    I'm so jealous of Seattle folks, this looks like fun. Nothing I went to at Mises had a cash bar.

    MAY 21, 2016SEATTLE, WA

    Join Lew Rockwell, Walter Block, Tom Woods, Bob Murphy, and Jeff Deist at the Mises Circle, Town Hall Seattle as they demolish the economic myths of the 2016 election.

    As economist William Anderson explains, "presidential elections in the United States spawn Really Bad Economic Policies, and 2016 is a vintage year."

    Candidates promise everything from living wages to free health care and college. Proposals about how to run whole segments of the economy are made with a straight face. The most tired and hackneyed ideas about income equality, corporate greed, creating jobs, and paying one's fair share of taxes are trotted out. And millions of voters apparently believe it all, falling for the same promises of free stuff and prosperity from Washington.

    How do political candidates get away with this nonsense, year after year and election after election? More importantly, what can we do as individuals to fight the entrenched economic illiteracy that keeps politicians in business?

    Join us in Seattle as we explore that very question-- and demolish the economic myths being peddled in the 2016 election. We'll have a great brunch at the beautiful and historic Town Hall venue, followed by the most interesting and un-PC talks you'll hear all year-- with plenty of time to meet the speakers and discuss the issues.

    Bob Murphy and Tom Woods, hosts of the popular Contra Krugman show, will tape a live episode with your participation. How does Paul Krugman, the New York Times's resident Keynesian and patron saint of leftwing economics, get everything so completely wrong? Bob and Tom not only have a great time skewering Krugman, but also teach you how to refute the economic fallacies that so many of your family and friends fall for.

    Dr. Walter Block, a childhood classmate of Bernie Sanders, will dissect one of the treasured sacred cows of Seattle's latte-Left: minimum wage laws. Lew Rockwell will give us the latest-- good, bad, and ugly-- on the candidates and their plots for us. Jeff Deist will offer his thoughts on strategies to change the conversation about economics.

    Don't miss this great opportunity to network and enjoy brunch with like-minded people, while enjoying the most uncompromising and stimulating talks available anywhere in 2016.

    Registration fee is $50 per person and includes a spectacular brunch buffet with cash bar. Directions and parking information for Town Hall Seattle can be found here.
