Friedman Legacy Day 2014 - Wilmington 

The John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy travels to Wilmington to share the Friedman Legacy Day event at the Country Club of Landfall!

We hope you will join us for a celebration of the life and work of economist and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman. We'll be toasting him on what would have been his 102st birthday.

Friedman Legacy Day is a way of remembering Milton Friedman and the impact his ideas have had on our country and the world. 

Speaker Michael Munger is Director of the PPE Program at Duke University as well as professor of economics and public policy. As all who have heard him know, Dr. Munger is an energetic and humorous speaker.

His topic: Collision With Error: Why Our Educational System is Failing the Left

Dr. Munger, prior to teaching at Duke University, taught at Dartmouth University, University of Texas-Austin and UNC-Chapel Hill. He moved to Duke in 1997, and was chair of the Political Science Department from 2000 through 2010.
