The Atlas Economic Research Foundation cordially invites you to our upcoming Sound Money Project Conference, to be held in the afternoon of Friday, April 1, 2011, at the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, Texas, before the Philadelphia Society National Meeting.
The theme of our conference is “The Consequences of Progressivism on Money and Investment.” We plan to begin at 1:30 p.m. and end at 5:00 p.m., in time for the Philadelphia Society Meeting’s registration and reception.
Given that our country is still reeling from the recessionary effects of bad monetary policies, we believe it is important to examine why our current monetary policies have strayed away from traditional sound money principles. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 opened the door to a progressive shift in our monetary thinking, whose consequences have put our economic path in jeopardy. In practical terms, it is critical that we understand the policy impact of this philosophical shift on our investment climate and economic growth.
Atlas’s Sound Money Project aims to restore the principles of sound money by engaging the works of think tanks, scholars and practitioners.
This mini-conference begins with two panel discussions, the first addressing the importance of restoring the principled grounding of sound money, and the second on the policy implications of progressivism on sound money. Panelists include Jeffrey Bell, Policy Director at the American Principles Project; Dennis Teti, Consultant and Writer; John Mueller, Director of the Economics and Ethics Program at the Ethics & Public Policy Center, and Peter Lewin, Professor of Managerial Economics at the University of Texas at Dallas.
The second part of the conference will feature Mr. Thomas Landstreet, a successful Wall Street investor, will speak on “Booms & Busts Don’t Happen in a Vacuum: An Investor’s Perspective on Today’s Policy Challenges.”
