2013 Speaker Ideas
« on: May 16, 2012, 12:59:37 pm »

Just to get this started, saw this on the LRC Blog today:

http://www.freelakotabank.com/accounts.asp

Not sure who to invite as a speaker, but Russell Means would be great, whether or not he is connected to the bank.

A speaker from the Lakota Bank would be good, I agree.

If we are voting then John Cochrane from Chicago Booth would also be an excellent speaker, beyond his excellent economics work he has had an on-going very amusing feud with Krugman for some time now (see one such article http://faculty.chicagobooth.edu/john.cochrane/research/papers/ecaf_2077.pdf). http://faculty.chicagobooth.edu/john.cochrane/

Also a Chiacgo, but probably much harder to get, is Gary Becker who is a Nobel laureate, as well as a vast number of other prizes ans awards, and has written a number of fantastic pro-liberty papers looking at things such as drug reform and paid organ markets. http://home.uchicago.edu/gbecker/

Another great speaker would be David Friedman, son of Milton. http://daviddfriedman.blogspot.com/

Didn't we have David Friedman not long ago?

The MN LP had Russell Means some time around 2000 and he was pretty good.

Adam Baldwin of Firefly fame (probably a long shot...)

Is Todd Newton in favor of liberty? The only political issue I saw in the wikipedia entry was about fighting global warming. I thought maybe he was just saying he would help without really understanding the FSP, because people were following him on twitter.

I recommend inviting the chair of the New Hampshire Republican Liberty Caucus,
the chair of the New Hampshire Libertarian Party,
the chair of the New Hampshire Republican House Alliance,
the chair of the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance,
the head of NH Common Sense,
the head of the NH chapter of Americans for Prosperity
and the head of the NH chapter of Campaign for Liberty. I would like them to talk about legislative actions in 2011-2012 and the 2013-2014 agenda. If they, want, I'd love to hear of possible long term gains.

Maybe do the same thing for NH liberty media, both print and spoken.

Maybe also with people working with charities or creating alternate structures.

I want to know what people in positions of power in NH think is possible to achieve in the next 2 years and hopefully, long term. I want to know some ideas they have on how to reach those goals.

I think this could help, realistically, sell NH to some people.

I know many of these things have been talked about at past Liberty Forums. I don't think we have had several of these people talk before, though. I don't remember any Campaign for Liberty or AFP speakers. Maybe those groups could also be sponsors?

I don't think there is such a thing as a long term gain.

Wouldn't mind Adam Kokesh. Or Stefan Molyneux again. I like Dr. Keith Smith's blog but I am not sure he would be a great speaker.

IMO if it is an economist, he/she should be an Austrian, not Chicago school.
