Economist Stephen Moore to Address “Free Markets and the Modern Political Scene”

Contact: Robert Marczynski

Stephen MooreMarch 11, 2014 - Stephen Moore, chief economist at the Heritage Foundation, will provide his unique perspective on today's political environment in light of his advocacy for free-market economic policies at the University of Memphis' Marcus Orr Center for the Humanities' lecture Thursday, March 20. Moore's lecture will be presented in the University Center Theatre with a reception at 5:30 p.m. in the theatre lobby followed by the lecture at 6 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Zach Curlin garage directly across from the University Center.

As chief economist, Moore and the Heritage Foundation promote conservative public policies based on free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values and a strong national defense.

Moore's steadfast beliefs led him to found the Club for Growth, which raises money for political candidates favoring free-market economic policies. He went on to establish the Free Enterprise Club before joining the Wall Street Journal, where he served as a member of the editorial board and senior economics writer. He is the author of five books, including his most recent publication, Bullish on Bush: How the Ownership Society Is Making America Richer.

In addition to his work advocating for free-market policies, Moore served as a senior economics fellow at the Cato Institute, where he published dozens of studies on federal and state tax and budget policy. He also has had a distinguished career in public service as a senior economist on the Congressional Joint Economic Committee, consultant to the National Economic Commission, and research director for President Ronald Reagan's Commission on Privatization.

Moore's lecture is co-sponsored by Nationwide Financial, Young America's Foundation, the U of M Department of Economics' William N. Morris Chair of Excellence, the Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate, and Public Service Funds.
