The limits of politics

LOCK HAVEN — Is our country so divided that we’ve reached the limit of what can be done politically? Can political solutions still be reached, or is democratic consensus a myth?

Next Thursday, Jeff Deist will explore how markets and civil society can solve problems when the political process fails in a lecture entitled “The Limits of Politics: Free Markets, Peace, & Voluntarism.” Deist is the president of the Mises Institute and formerly worked as a longtime advisor and chief of staff to Congressman Ron Paul.

The lecture is slated for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10 in the Student PUB Room 2, Lock Haven University. For more information, contact Nathan Kreider at nak6219@lhup.edu.
