[A to Z Online Series] Market Urbanism: Bottom up solutions for your community in a post COVID-19 world
Please join the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) for our new summer video town hall series, “A to Z Online”!
Moderated by FEE President Zilvinas “Z” Silenas, this weekly webinar series will discuss topics related to the problems facing our country and world, particularly in light of COVID-19 and the rise of socialism. With the help of real-world entrepreneurs, activists, thinkers, and doers, this new series from FEE will offer practical solutions to today’s problems through the lens of the “freedom philosophy.”
For this edition, FEE has partnered with the Mercatus Center, the Pacific Legal Foundation, and The Charles Koch Institute to look at housing in a post COVID-19 world. As unemployment and economic shutdowns continue to affect citizens across the country, many are left in distress and without a sense of security. How will this pandemic affect the future of rental properties? Will government regulation cause more harm than good?
Join us to learn how property rights and individual autonomy can restore order in our communities and help us prosper.
This webinar will be delivered at 1pm Eastern Time at no cost to you.
