ON-Lion Letter
A February conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., co-sponsored by The Heritage Foundation and The Club for Growth, examined free-market solutions to the economic challenges facing America.  About 150 Hill staffers, reporters, and commentators attended "Economic Recovery:  Free Markets vs. Big Government."

During the conference, two panels of leading economic scholars, economists, historians, and policy experts discussed the benefits of following the 1981 Ronald Reagan model of tax cuts and limited government to promote economic growth and prosperity.  They also talked about the drawbacks of following the alternative, 1930s' New Deal model. 

The day's keynote speaker was Prof. Donald Boudreaux, chairman of George Mason University's economics department, who covered how "stimulus" spending hasn't worked in the past.  Boudreaux is also a former president of the Foundation for Economic Education.

Videos of the proceedings are available online.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supported the conference.
