Yaron Brook has been invited to be the next speaker in the Hungry Minds Speaker series.The talk takes place on August 25 at Chinook Tavern in Greenwood Village, Colorado. On August 26 and 27, he will also give two talks at the Steamboat Institute’s 8th Annual Freedom Conference and Festival in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

This Saturday, April 9, guest hosts Amanda Maxham and Aaron Smith will talk about the meaning of selfishness, benevolence and altruism; whether it’s selfish to have (or not have) children; the disturbing environmentalist trend of viewing children as “carbon burdens.”
Don Watkins and Yaron Brook are currently on a tour promoting their newly released book, Equal Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality in talks, panels, seminars and debates. So far, they have reached audiences in Chicago, New York City, Washington, DC and San Francisco.
Yesterday, Investor’s Business Daily published a new op-ed by Don Watkins and Yaron Brook, in which they argue, contra Thomas Piketty et al., that there’s nothing even remotely unfair with the wealth gap due to inheritances.
Yaron Brook will be in the Chicago area March 21 to March 23 to discuss his much anticipated new book, Equal Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality. The book, co-authored by Don Watkins, is the first major narrative to challenge Bernie, Hillary and the rest of the inequality alarmists.
Recently, I debated Professor Rick L. Hasen of UC Irvine School of Law at a Federalist Society event at Southwestern School of Law in LA. The subject was campaign finance law, and Professor Hasen took the opportunity to outline the case he makes in his new book, Plutocrats United: Campaign Money, the Supreme Court, and the Distortion of American Elections. From the title, you might guess that he is both not a fan of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision and that he thinks money in politics is leading to a kind of plutocracy, in which the wealthy end up influencing government far out of proportion to everyone else.
