University Opens Free Market Institute

Benjamin PowellBenjamin Powell

Funded by a $4 million gift, Texas Tech University officials will announce the opening of the new Free Market Institute designed to research and educate students, the Lubbock community and the nation on the benefits of free-market economics.

The opening begins at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday (March 6) during a reception celebrating the launch of the institute in the McCoy Atrium of the Rawls College of Business.

The new institute will be headed by Benjamin Powell, who is also a senior fellow at the Independent Institute, newspaper columnist and a visiting professor in the Rawls College of Business. He and Robert Lawson, co-author of the Economic Freedom of the World Annual Report, will make remarks during the opening.

Powell said the $4 million came from an anonymous West Texas cattle rancher.

“The reason this donor wanted to fund this institute is because he thinks the country is going down the wrong economic path, ” Powell said. “He thought what was needed was more teaching and knowledge of free markets, and he thought Texas Tech University would be a wonderful place to get this started. This institute will promote research on free-market economics and the teaching of that to Texas Tech students, faculty and the Lubbock community, as well as the country.”

Lawrence SchovanecPowell was editor of “Making Poor Nations Rich: Entrepreneurship and the Process of Development” and co-editor of “Housing America: Building Out of a Crisis.” He has written more than 50 scholarly articles and policy studies. He primarily studies economic development, Austrian economics and public choice.

His findings have been reported in more than 100 popular press outlets including The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, Investor’s Business Daily, the Financial Times (London), the Christian Science Monitor, and many regional outlets. He has appeared on numerous radio and television shows including CNN, MSNBC, Showtime, CNBC and Fox Business’ “Freedom Watch.”

With Powell, associated faculty at the institute will include Michael Giberson, an instructor of energy commerce at the Rawls College of Business; Eduardo Segarra, chairman of the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics; and Charles Long, who will serve as an economist and administrator for the institute. A national search for two more faculty members is underway, Powell said.

“Free-market economics represents one component of the spectrum of thinking in economics, ” he said. “This area discusses and encourages debate on traditional and non-traditional economic activity and the roles of government and people in society in an economic context.”

From Grievious Happenings
by Pablo Neruda, translated by Victoria Ortiz
In 1934 Hitler came to power promising his German corporate handlers to 'fight communism. ' He had to send in the stormtroopers to smash all radical opposition.
Today he would look over the U.S. scene with some satisfaction. In the U.S. today there is no significant radical opposition to fight. There is no mainstream political choice to the one-party two-branches system. There is no...
