- “LEAP Cities” is an innovative model designed to achieve economic development. By optimizing Legal, Economic, Administrative, and Political elements, the model has the potential to attract international investment, create jobs, and promote integration. Although it has received some objections, Mark Klugmann will show why the LEAP model is not what Friedrich A. Hayek considered to be a designed society or a planned economy. Instead, LEAP Cities is a model that can be used to facilitate liberty abroad, benefiting the overall marketplace of the world.
- Mark Klugmann is the creator of the LEAP Zones model (special Legal, Economic, Administrative and Political jurisdictions, using “institutional leapfrogging” as a framework for a free city/charter city and for other purposes). He served in the White House as speechwriter to Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush; then, he moved to Chile where he helped Jose Piñera to create the International Center for Pension Reform. (Source: www.newmedia.ufm.edu)
