Free summer economic training by FEE for high school students at SLU

The Foundation for Economic Education, a free-market think tank and publishers of Bastiat's "The Law," is bringing a high school seminar to St. Louis this summer (July 12-15). Application deadline is March 31st. As far as I know, these seminars are still free to liberty-minded students.

(College seminar "True Costs of War" is also coming to StL -

Perhaps you know students who should attend? Highly recommended!

Free the World

July 12-15: St. Louis, MO - St. Louis University


Are you a high school student who loves freedom?  Do you wonder if America really is the land of the free?  Do you want to learn about what makes some countries freer than others and what that freedom means for the people living there?  Then come to "Free the World," July 12-15, 2013, at Saint Louis University in Saint Louis, Missouri!
