In the Phoenix area? We hope you'll join us at our upcoming Phoenix City Seminar!
As a surgeon and founder of Valley Surgical Clinics, Ltd., keynote speaker & Cato Senior Fellow Jeffrey Singer brings a unique perspective to the problem of opioid abuse. According to a recent New York Times analysis, drug overdoses—especially opioid-related overdoses—are now the leading cause of death among Americans under age 50. These types of deaths have occurred with such frequency that Maryland, Florida, and now Arizona have declared medical states of emergency. Jeff will discuss whether regulators, in their rush to interfere in the patient-doctor relationship, are actually causing more problems than they are solving.
We'll also hear from Ryan Bourne, the R. Evan Scharf Chair for the Public Understanding of Economics at Cato. Around the world, there has been an explosion in the use of formal fiscal rules to try to keep government budget deficits and debt under control. Which work well? And what are the lessons for the U.S. government? Ryan will address these questions in his presentation, “A Fiscal Rule to Tame Federal Debt?”
Our luncheon speaker will be the Honorable Clint Bolick, Associate Justice of the Arizona Supreme Court and cofounder of the Institute for Justice. At our 2016 Constitution Day Symposium, Bolick delivered a wonderful keynote address about the largely unknown weapons for liberty found in state constitutions. Clint will make the case that the courts are freedom’s best hope.
