Ed Stringham to Speak At GMU On His New Book

by Don Boudreaux on September 1, 2015

in Books, Current Affairs

Starting at 2:00pm on Thursday (September 3), Ed Stringham (a GMU Econ alum) will discuss his newly published book, Private Governance.  The location is GMU’s Fairfax campus.  Here’s the summary of the event:

Are all of the rules and regulations governing economic activity a product of central planning or legislation? To what extent does privately produced and enforced governance play a role? In his latest book, Edward Stringham argues that much of what is orderly in the economy can actually be attributed to governing mechanisms devised and enforced by private groups and individuals.

Please join the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University for a panel discussion featuring Edward Stringham and his new book, Private Governance: Creating Order in Economic and Social Life (Oxford University Press, 2015).

We will be pleased to hear from author Edward Stringham, as well as panel chair Peter Boettke, and commenters Jason Brennan and Bruce Benson.

For any further questions, please contact Bethany Stalter at bstalter@mercatus.gmu.edu or (703) 993-4889.

If you’ll be in the area on Thursday afternoon, do attend!  (I’ll be there.)
