Economics Reading Group - The Road to Serfdom

This year the Economics Reading Group is reading F.A. Hayek's "Road to Serfdom." Students received copies of the book before the December break and we will meet to discuss the book on Thursday evening.

We will watch the first of a two part interview with Milton Friedman on the book during our discussion (while we eat pizza!) You can watch both parts of the interview below.

Next week we will travel to Washington DC to visit with scholars on the topic of economic freedom from the Mercatus Center, Heritage Foundation, and American Enterprise Institute.
