You’re invited to join the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE.org) for the fourth installment of the FEE Online Town Hall Summer Series: “Free-market solutions in a time of crisis—fostering productive innovation for the future.”
Human beings are never more innovative than during times of crisis, as the ingenuity of humans responds to problems that need to be solved. How do we properly incentivize companies to pursue new technologies to solve COVID-19? What changes to the healthcare field will come out of COVID-19?
Will Rinehart and Eli Dourado of the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University and Stephen Hicks of the Atlas Society will join FEE President, Zilvinas “Z” Silenas, to discuss technology and innovation and how humanity advances during troubling times. Is there a silver lining to COVID-19? Will some good come out of it? Join us for this online webinar on May 27th to find out.
This webinar is delivered at no cost to you, and will occur at 12pm Eastern Time.
