Wednesday, October 24, 6:00 p.m.
Featuring the author John A. Allison, President, Cato Institute, and Former Chairman and CEO, BB&T Corporation. Moderated by David Boaz, Executive Vice President, Cato Institute.
About the event – Not only is free-market capitalism good for the economy, says John A. Allison, it is our only hope for recovery. As the nation’s longest-serving CEO of a top-25 financial institution, Allison has had a unique inside view of the events leading up to the financial crisis. In this provocative book, he discusses why regulation is bad for the market—and for the world—what we can do to promote a healthy free market, how we can help end unemployment in America, the truth about TARP and the bailouts, and how Washington keeps entrepreneurs from building a better future for everyone. With shrewd insight, alarming insider details, and practical advice for today’s leaders, this analysis is nothing less than a call to arms.
