Join us on Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. for a Liberty Café featuring Dr. Ning Wang on the rise of China as a surprising illustration of the free market's power to do good.

"Conventional wisdom in the West portrays the rise of China as a rival and potential threat to classical liberalism. This prevailing view grossly misreads the character of China's market transformation. Instead, I shall argue that the economic rise of China bears witness to the efficacy of economic freedom, the benevolence of the market, and the wisdom of limited government. Against many claims to the contrary, the China story is a stunning triumph of the classical liberalism." -Dr. Ning Wang

Atlas Network Economic and Trade Policy Advisor Laura Liu moderate this event.

Pizza and drinks will be served.
