About This Event
From bailouts for banks and carmakers to subsidies for solar panels and sugar growers — not to mention mandates for health insurance and ethanol — big business hasn’t exactly asked Washington to leave it alone in recent years. But while industry lobbies often seek special favors, they also bring their clout to the pro-growth fight against overregulation and tax hikes and for competition and free enterprise.
So is big business a true ally of free enterprise? Should it be? Or does its penchant for cronyism and government “investment” in politically favored industries make it just another special interest?
Our panelists from the left, the right, and K Street will answer these questions and discuss the future of big business, economic freedom, and the state.
