Lubbock Liberty Workshop With Dr. Benjamin Powell Out Of Poverty

0 comments
Lubbock Liberty and the Texas Tech University chapter of Young Americans For Liberty co-hosted the Director of the Free Market Institute at Texas Tech, Dr. Ben Powell.  Powell gave a presentation on his newest book, Out of Poverty: Sweatshops in the Global Economy.
In Out of Poverty, Powell uses economic theory in arguing that much of what the anti-sweatshop movement has agitated for would actually harm the very workers they intend to help by creating less desirable alternatives and undermining the process of development.

After Powell's presentation about his findings in Out of Poverty, he took questions and comments from the audience.

Brian Thornton, one of Lubbock Liberty's organizers, said of the event, “we are thrilled to have such a distinguished guest speaking to the power of the free market in improving lives around the world.”

0 comments
The Lubbock Liberty Workshop held on Saturday, September 27, 2014


Lubbock Liberty and the Lubbock Constitutionalist Society co-hosted this workshop on our Fourth Amendment right against unreasonable and warrantless searches and seizures. Prior to Independence, our founders were subject to "general warrants" which allowed the prying eyes of government to intrude at an official's whim, especially against political dissidents.

The expertise of guest speaker Professor Arnold H. Loewy of Texas Tech University School of Law, George R. Killam Jr. Chair Of Criminal Law, 2006 is welcomed on the Fourth Amendment.

Coments, questions, and answers will follow Professor Loewy's remarks.
