New Lecture Series, "Economics and Liberty at Coastal," Begins November 4

“Economics and Liberty at Coastal” Will Be Open to the Public

Brunswick, GA The inaugural lecture in a new public series, Economics and Liberty at Coastal, will be held Monday, November 4 at 6:00 p.m. in the Stembler Theatre of the Campus Center. The program is free and open to the public.

The speaker will be Dr. Scott Beaulier of the Sorrell College of Business at Troy University in Alabama, holder of the Adams-Bibby Chair of Free Enterprise and Executive Director of the Manuel H. Johnson Center for Political Economy.

“The focus of this stimulating series will be the role of economics in a free society. We will be exploring the inter-relationship between economics, freedom and liberty,” explained Dr. Skip Mounts, Dean of the School of Business and Public Affairs. ”Anyone with an appreciation for social responsibility, global awareness and engaged entrepreneurship will relish this exchange.”

Dr. Beaulier described his topic, The Kids Are Not Alright, as “a candid discussion of theyouth unemployment problem in America - its causes, the consequences for young Americans, and what can be done about it.”

He explained, “One in three young Americans today is not in school and not working. The problem has gotten much worse since the ‘Great Recession,’ and many policies being put in place to help youth are causing more harm than good.”

The Charles Koch Foundation in Arlington, VA, awarded the College a grant to produce the program.
