On Acton University
I spent the last several days in Grand Rapids attending Acton University--a program for people who want to know more about market economies, liberty, and theology. I gave two lectures--one on theologians vs. capitalism and another on basic macroeconomics. I also attended some lectures, including one on John Ryan and the New Deal and another on fair trade. The latter was presented by my former colleague, Victor Claar. He has an excellent monograph on the subject entitled, Fair Trade? It's Prospects as a Poverty Solution. I highly recommend the monograph.
