Prospects for Freedom and Prosperity: A Panel Discussion

The Free Market Institute (FMI) at Texas Tech University (TTU), with financial support from the John Templeton Foundation, has undertaken a three-year sponsored research program titled Research on the Origins of Economic Freedom and Prosperity.

The research program aims to identify, contextualize and explain – through a series of empirical and qualitative studies, public programming, workshops, and other research activities – the many and varied market and non-market mechanisms that initiate and perpetuate processes of institutional change, with an emphasis on evaluating their attendant impacts on economic freedom.

The program output contributes to ongoing debates concerning several important questions, building on the research of many scholars – both past and present – and aiming to encourage additional research on the program themes.

The panel discussion will feature commentary and discussion from distinguished scholars, whose research has contributed insights on a number of issues related to the broader program themes.

For more information about the program and the speakers, please visit the FMI Upcoming Events page or contact the FMI by phone at 806.742.7138 or email at free.market@ttu.edu.
