Can you explain why some tax cuts (Bush’s second term, Obama’s) do absolutely nothing to stimulate the economy, while others (Reagan’s, Bush’s first term) provide a great stimulus?
Were you taught in High School that the federal government needs to protect consumers from corporate monopolies that would otherwise be able to charge whatever they wanted?
Were you taught that Roosevelt’s New Deal saved the country by intervening in the economy and “stimulating” demand?
Did you know that the biggest problem with American healthcare (one that is financially hurting us all) is that there is far too much insurance coverage?
The greatest opportunity ever given to the world was thrown away because the passion for equality made vain the hope for freedom.
A free society cannot survive unless the people understand what is going on. Loren Spivack, The Free Market Warrior, has committed himself to helping an entire generation of Americans understand how economics works. The information is given in straightforward accessible format, with the goal of preparing a new “army” of regular Americans ready and equipped to fight for freedom, in that area where freedom is most crucial: our economic lives.
The seminar will presented in these sections, over three sessions:
- Intellectual and Historical Roots of Socialism: Understanding its broad appeal.
- The Intellectual and Historical Roots of Capitalism: Why we’ll starve without it.
- The Source of Value: Two contrasting views and their implications.
- Applying the Principles of Freedom to the Problems of Today: Taxes, Education, Health Care, Protectionism and Outsourcing, Population, Natural Resources and many more.
Praise from previous seminar participants:
Loren has amassed a great deal of relevant knowledge of economic systems and how they relate to governments and individuals. He does a great job of communicating in an easy to understand manner by providing clear examples from history to buttress his reasoning.
Rick Sheppard, Hickory NC
Everyone in the USA needs to hear your lectures, and soon!
Tom Winslow, Newton NC
Mr. Spivack has a remarkable grasp of the principles of free market economics along with a wonderful talent for making these ideas relevant and accessible to people in their everyday lives. His seminar is a must for anyone who wants to really understand what going wrong in America today, and what the solutions are.
Bettina Greaves (Former personal secretary to Nobel Prize winning economist Ludwig Von Misses)
Time wisely spent.
Jon Reynolds, Charlotte NC
Wow! I always thought economics was like voodoo…but Loren made it clear, simple and fun!

This seminar is worth more than most college educations!

Internationally renowned Australian speaker, lecturer, author and media commentator Nick Adams will be at the Republican Party of Brazos County Headquarters Tuesday, July 2 at 6:00pm. Refreshments will be available.
From his media release:
He is best known for his work in the field of American exceptionalism, and is credited with a resurgence in the idea worldwide. Having authored two books, both held by the Library of Congress in Washington DC, his contributions conclude that the American success, power and influence of today rest strongly with the traditional family and biblical values of the nation yesterday.
Mr. Adams is a staunch defender of traditional marriage, and the rights of the unborn, and advocate of Christian leadership in all areas of life and industry. He has been at the forefront of the culture war, with his work featured across national media mediums in America, including CSpan, Fox News and Sirius XM Radio. Adams has received several state awards, including honorary citizenships in America.
As a professional speaker and entrepreneur, he has given major addresses in several countries. His work in the United States has seen him speak in more than twenty states, at conventions, corporate meetings, military bases, universities, high schools and churches. He is a survivor of childhood cancer, given at the age of sixteen months just a five percent
chance of survival.
Mr. Adams earned both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Sydney. During his studies, Mr. Adams was publicly elected the youngest Deputy Mayor in Australian history in Sydney at the age of twenty-one. He is fluent in German.
His website is www.nickadamsinamerica.com.
Nick is a successful and sought-after author, having published two books, with a third currently under negotiation.
Exceptional America: A Message of Hope from a Modern-Day de Tocqueville
The worsening debt crisis, the plague of political correctness, and the threat to personal freedoms would make a lesser nation and her people crumble. Yet Americans possess an unrelenting desire for a better life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness. As Australian Nick Adams travels throughout America celebrating the character of her citizens and the causes she champions, he provides a historical roadmap, connecting our doggedly determined past with our uncharted future.
Exceptional America takes you into the heart of the nation as you rediscover that those ingrained qualities of her people that first made her a superpower are the same that make America so exceptional today, and the same that will
secure our destiny.
America: The Greatest Good
Is America the indispensable nation, and if so, what makes us unique? Sometimes it takes someone on the outside to help us answer those questions. Young Australian Nick Adams does this, with his analysis of America based on his travels stretching coast to coast.
His fresh look at our culture is deep and his insights brilliant, examining everything from patriotism to Christianity. The conclusions in America: The Greatest Good are profound, and leave the everyday American with a
refreshed and newfound appreciation their nation.
