David Seymour – Senior Policy Analyst from Frontier Centre for Public Policy

Hello Everyone.
Hope you’re surviving the wintery blast.  This week we have David Seymour a Senior Policy Analyst and Director of the Saskatchewan Office of the Frontier Centre for Public Policy speaking.  He will be examining the claims that ‘Capitalism has failed’.  Here is a short extract that he has given us on what he will cover.

“Now it seems that the welfare state is failing in a much more profound way.  In the United States, Italy, Greece, and to a lesser extent New Zealand, the political systems produce expectations around taxes and entitlements that do not balance, leading to deficits, debts, and disruption.  Drawing on public choice economics, ecology, and the history of collapsed societies, I’ll argue that our current democratic process is a case of the tragedy of the commons.  Like environmental commons tragedies, the solution is to return more decision making to the private realm.”

Sound interesting?  Come along and find out.
