The College of Charleston School of Business Center for Public Choice and Market Process has partnered with the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University to host the 2017 Weekend Exploring Liberty — a lecture series highlighting alternatives to government environmental and sustainability programs.

The event, which will be held Friday, Sept. 22 and Saturday, Sept. 23 in the Wells Fargo Auditorium of the Beatty Center, includes speaker sessions throughout the day and networking socials in the evening.

Speakers include Gary Libecap, Ph.D., professor of economics at the University of California, Santa Barbara; Dale Matcheck, Ph.D., assistant professor of economics at Northwood University; and Randy Simmons, Ph.D., professor of political economy and director of the Institute of Political Economy at Utah State University.

The Center for Public Choice and Market Process is funded by BB&T and the Koch Foundation and is designed to advance the understanding of the economic, political, and moral foundations of a free market economy. The Center supports the growth and development of teaching and research at the College of Charleston School of Business, while engaging students and the greater Charleston business community.
