Not sure what to make of this, it is a little different to have a discussion on troubles as far away as Africa.
Other interesting topics should be presented later in the year.
Again, I am thankful for our recent candidate and activist leader from Astoria.

[frankly I pretty much dont like these discussions, but I find Mr. Higgs rather charming]


Robert Higgs:
Replaying the New Deal -- A Very Bad Idea

Thursday, April 2, 2009
(day after April1)


* The meeting begins at ABOUT 7:30pm ++ with a discussion of current issues and events.
* The featured speaker is introduced at ABOUT 8:00pm++ .


General Society Library
20 West 44th Street, NYC
between 5th and 6th Avenues
near the Grand Central Terminal

Please note:
   Junto is not the usual sort of meeting with a long speech followed by Q & A.
Junto's invited speakers give a short presentation, and then are challenged to defend their assertions.
   Discussions are intense, but polite. Participation by all attendees is highly encouraged.


Junto has a meeting on the first Thursday of every month,
at the General Society Library

"Replaying the New Deal -- A Very Bad Idea"

   As the recession has deepened and the financial debacle
has lurched from one episode to another during the past year,
many commentators have recommended that the U.S.
government undertake a second New Deal. These calls seem
premised on a variety of myths about what the original New
Deal involved and what it gave rise to.
   The New Deal -- and to some extent the Hoover program
that preceded it -- amounted to a massive, ongoing,
unpredictable intervention in the market system. Although a
few of the programs might have had positive first-order effects
on the economy's performance, the New Deal as a whole
amounted to an enormous drag on the normal readjustments to
and recovery from the economic downturn that began in 1929.
   A second New Deal would be highly detrimental to
recovery from the current recession.

About Robert Higgs:
He's a Senior Fellow in Political Economy for
The Independent Institute and editor of the Institute's quarterly journal
 "The Independent Review: A Journal of Political Economy".
   He received his Ph.D. in economics from the Johns Hopkins U.

Schiff v Fed - April 25 Re: NYC
« Reply #18 on: April 24, 2009, 07:47:49 PM »
Hopefully more are considering this very powerful unofficial branch under act of Congress.

http://thomas.loc.gov/home/gpoxmlc111/h1207_ih.xml

Cosponsors (84)

H.R.1207
Title: To amend title 31, United States Code, to reform the manner in which the
Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is audited by the Comptroller General of the United States
and the manner in which such audits are reported, and for other purposes.

Audit The Fed
Saturday April 25
Federal Reserve building, 33 Liberty Street, at 11:00 a.m.
City Hall Park, which will commence at 2:00 p.m.
Peter Schiff, president of Euro Pacific Capital, is the keynote speaker.


The focus of the rally will be to gain support for H.R. 1207, Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve.
Everyone from every party should be able to agree on greater government transparency.
The Fed, nominally an “independent” organization that functions like a government agency, has no transparency or accountability.
So far, H.R. 1207 has over 80 co-sponsors, including Democrats and Republicans.

2009 city races - May 11 Re: LP - NYC

I dont usually expect this to be my favorite event of the year, but it is at least for the party a significant one.
May 11, all NYC Libertarians and public are welcomed. Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, SI.
The membership will be nominating candidates for citywide races: Mayor, Public Advocate, Comptroller. In addition, there should be nominations for Manhattan races as well.
I hope there would be interesting results. Though some of my favorite past candidates do not plan to run this year. And the Libertarians always reserve the choice to choose none of the above.


Monday May 11th, 2009

7:00 am to 9:00 pm

Nominating convention

Quote

Want to run for public office as a Freedom orientated candidate? This year every City office is up for grabs; Mayor, City Council, Public advocate, Borough President, Etc.
Economic Freedom and Personal Liberty: The Libertarian Party.
Come Down for a vigorous debate between potential nominees and intense Q & A Sessions.
