Fayetteville State University professor, Dr. Edward Stringham will be speaking in Europe and around the world at the 2013 Free Market Road Show for the greater part of May and June. He will talk about the importance of free enterprise, whether increased government regulations are helping or hindering the market, and how to best encourage more entrepreneurship in the future.
Dr. Stringham audiences include students, professors, and business groups throughout Europe, with an emphasis on Eastern Europe, – in the following cities: Tirana, Podgorica, Dubrovnik, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Zagreb, Llubliana, Brescia, Warsaw, Bratislava, Vienna, and Paris. He said, “The Free Market Road Show is a wonderful way to discuss the ideas of capitalism and free enterprise with an audience worldwide. This will be my third year volunteering. I find the interest and passion for ideas of many of the young people throughout Eastern Europe inspiring.” He added, “Barbara Kolm and the sponsors of the Free Market Roadshow are doing a great service by bringing these speakers to a large audience.”
