I have been invited to attend the Minnesota Free Market Institute’s luncheon today.
2009 Spring Policy Luncheon with
Lawrence J. McQuillan Ph.D
“The Sizzle of Economic Freedom”
“Instead of selling the freedom steak, sell the sizzle,” says Dr. Lawrence McQuillan co-author of The Sizzle of Economic Freedom. “Along with extolling the virtue of liberty, conservatives should be selling the everyday benefits of economic freedom. ”
In a luncheon address sponsored by the Minnesota Free Market Institute on April 14th at the Minneapolis Hilton, Dr. McQuillan, Director of Business and Economic Studies at the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco, will highlight the benefits of economic freedom and the status of economic freedom in Minnesota.
From 1998 until 2001, McQuillan was a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, specializing in international economics. While in graduate school at George Mason University, where he earned a Ph.D. in economics, McQuillan was a research assistant for Nobel laureate James M. Buchanan and received the H. B. Earhart Fellowship for research excellence.
