The Sun Lakes Republican Club will feature “Economic Truths: Production or Plunder” with guest speaker Keith DeGreen at its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 6:30 p.m. in the Navajo Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club, at 25601 S. Sun Lakes Blvd., in Sun Lakes. (This program was originally announced for a meeting in late 2022 and had to be rescheduled for Feb. 8 due to unforeseen circumstances.) The public is invited. Please invite your neighbors and friends! Our mission is “education for an informed electorate.”
Abraham Lincoln in his Address to Baltimore Sanitary Fair on April 18, 1864, stated, “We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing.” What can economics teach us about liberty, government, and how to have a good society? What are the founding principles of America? Is government of the people, by the people, and for the people simply a failed experiment? Are we adults in charge of our fate, or are we children to be coddled by a nanny state?
What are the roots of democratic capitalism? Is American exceptionalism a myth? How has free enterprise accommodated society’s changing needs? Are there better alternatives, as some contend? What should steer the economy—government experts or the free market? Most importantly, how can we defend our Constitutional Republic for future generations? What post-election policies might we expect out of Washington, D.C., and what will be the impact of the election on the national economy and the markets? These are just a few of the questions that will be addressed by speaker Keith DeGreen.
