Three ways to attend: 1. Pay $25.00 2. Get a Free ticket if you will volunteer to help AFP with phone banks and/or door-to-door this year 3. If you can’t volunteer, get a FREE ticket with no meal and come listen. This guy is Amazing and we will all get so much information we all need to hear!!!

Arthur C. Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute think tank, will speak at dinner on Wednesday, April 9, from 6 to 9 pm at the Wyndham Riverfront in North Little Rock.

Sponsored by the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, the evening includes an after-dinner members-only reception for AFP’s Champions of Freedom.

From AFP Foundation:

Why Arthur Brooks?  First and foremost you’ll get priceless information.  You will hear and learn from one of the brightest minds of today.

Want to learn what the free market really is?  He’s got an answer for that.  Curious about how policies and seemingly innocuous laws affect your family?  He can tell you.

Want a clearer vision of the direction this nation is headed?  BOOM!  Mr. Brooks can help answer that too.

A self-described Independent, Brooks was the Louis A. Bantle Professor of Business and Government Policy at Syracuse University until 2009.  Throughout his career, Arthur has conducted research on the connections between culture, politics and economic life.  He has published hundreds of articles and 10 books on subjects ranging from the economics of the arts to military operations research.

Brooks’ biography on Wikipedia says, “Brooks believes America is locked in a culture war in which either America will continue to be an exceptional nation organized around the principles of free enterprise, limited government, a reliance on entrepreneurship and rewards determined by market forces, or America will move toward European-style statism grounded in expanding bureaucracies, a managed economy and large-scale income redistribution.

Brooks states that while some have tried to dismiss the “tea party” demonstrations and the town hall protests as the work of extremists, ignorant backwoodsmen or agents of the health-care industry, this movement reveals much about the culture war that is underway…”
