News archive - [Event Announcement] 6th Annual Free Market Road Show®

The Austrian Economics Center (AEC), in cooperation with over 40 leading think-tanks and universities across Europe and the Caucasus, and in association with international partners such as the Liberty Fund, FreedomWorks, European Students for Liberty and the F.A. v. Hayek Institut, are proud to present the 6th Annual Free Market Road Show® from 8th May to 27th June 2013.
The topic of the 2013 Free Market Road Show® is: “To Save or Not to Save: Will austerity programs alone save Europe?”

The 2013 Free Market Road Show® will bring together leading business people, outstanding scholars and students, opinion leaders, policy experts, elected officials, diplomats and other interested parties from across Europe to discuss these questions. Panel discussions at each conference stop along the Road Show will consider the current Euro-zone crisis, explore what kind of Europe people want, examine the ‘conundrum’ in which the European Union finds itself in and discuss ways to turn the current crisis into an opportunity.

Each Road Show conference will be organized around three thematic panels:
• More Europe vs. Less Europe: How much Europe can we really afford?
• Deregulation vs. Regulation: What brings an economy back on track?
• Welfare vs. Opportunities: Can youth unemployment be solved with more state intervention — or more freedom?
Started in 2008, the Free Market Road Show® brings together renowned economists, leading politicians and prominent business leaders every year to discuss current economic problems and possible solutions at a variety of venues across Europe and the Caucuses. It also provides unparalleled networking opportunities for participants and those within the European free market movement, with exclusive events such as cocktail receptions and dinners with top opinion leaders and decision makers.
Since it started, the Free Market Road Show® has reached more than 1,800 participants and more than a hundred speakers from around the world. In 2012, the Free Market Road Show® exceeded all previous attendance records.
