"Is the American Dream Dead?" with Kennesaw State University - Kennesaw Campus

Public Event
Friday, February 2, 2018 1:30 PM
402 Bartow Avenue Kennesaw, GA 30144

Why are Americans less likely to move to better opportunities than they used to be? Are we locking people out of the most productive cities? How do regulations affect everyone, especially those already living in poverty? To find out more...

Join Us February 2nd
To uncover how government regulations and policies can hinder your attempts to achieve the American dream, join FEE, The Archbridge Institute, and The Center for the Study of Markets and Economic Opportunity for our upcoming event at KSU - Kennesaw Campus. This FREE 1-day event is designed for KSU undergrads, but it's open to the public.

What's on the Agenda?
Through a series of incredible short films, talks, and panel discussions, you'll learn more about the role US government regulations play in declining mobility. You'll also discover how lack of mobility stifles innovation and widens the urban-rural divide in America. There will also be FREE books. 

If you have questions, contact Matt Day at [email protected].
