Evening at FEE: Why Socialism Fails, with Tsvetelin Tsonevski

Start Saturday, March 08, 2014 6:30 PM

End Saturday, March 08, 2014 9:30 PM

Join us in Irvington, NY for An Evening at FEE on Saturday, March 8 to hear Tsvetelin Tsonevski discuss "Why Socialism Fails.”

Growing up on the other side of the "Iron Curtain," Tsvet had the opportunity to experience personally the reality of socialism, which failed to deliver economic prosperity to the people of Eastern Europe. Combining personal anecdotes and Austrian economics—particularly Ludwig von Mises’s economic calculation argument—Tsonevski explores whether this is an accidental or a systematic failure.

Tsvet Tsonevski joined the free-market community first as a “Social Change” analyst at the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation in Washington, DC and then as a research coordinator at the Institute for Humane Studies in Arlington, VA. From 2010 through 2013, he was the director of academic affairs at FEE. Currently, Tsvet directs student programs for The Independent Institute in Oakland, CA. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Institute for Market Economics and the editor of the first edition of Ludwig von Mises's Human Action in Bulgarian.

Unfortunately, educating people about phenomena that are counterintuitive, not-so-easy to remember, and suggest our individual lack of human control (for starters) can seem like an uphill battle in the war of ideas. So we sally forth into a kind of wilderness, an economic fairyland. We are myth busters in a world where people crave myths more than reality. Why do they so readily embrace untruth? Primarily because the immediate costs of doing so are so low and the psychic benefits are so high.
