Economics in the Real World (with Georgia State University)

Join the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) and Georgia State University (GSU) on October 29th, 2021 for a three-part webinar series on "Economics in the Real World". 

From 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. ET, Holly Fretwell will kick off the series with a presentation on the "Economics of the Environment". Holly will help students understand the key characteristics of property rights and how markets provide cooperative solutions when property rights are secure. 

From 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. ET, Phil Magness will follow up with a discussion on "How Economic Development Ended Slavery". This presentation will explore the philosophical tensions between the nation’s founding and slavery, integrate economics into your understanding of slavery, and see how economic development played a key role in the expansion of abolitionism. 

Lastly, from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. ET, Antony Davies will provide an optimistic data-based presentation on how "The World is Becoming a Better Place". Across myriad measures, both the United States and the world are becoming better places to live. We have become so rich that what we call "poverty" today, people called "middle class" 100 years ago.

Join us for any (or all) of the sessions that you’re interested in attending!
