Speaking in San Franscisco Tomorrow

I will be talking tomorrow, Friday, February 12 in San Francisco about government spending and what to do about it at an event sponsored by the Mercatus Center.

If you’re interested in coming to hear me and other great speakers like George Mason University’s Garret Jones and Reason’s Brian Doherty speak in San Francisco, it’s not too late to register. The event begins at 12 noon, and will take place at the Hotel Nikko.

Please contact Julie Burden at and let her know you are contacting her because of this blog posting. The fee will be waived, I bet!
