    Join Us For a Panel Discussion on Sound Money

    On Tuesday, December 7, 2010 from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, FreedomWorks Foundation and Atlas Economic Research are co-sponsoring a panel discussion themed "Sound Money and America's Global Economic Leadership."

    It will held at the Capital Visitor Center (Room SVC 203-202) in Washington, DC. Since seating is limited, attendees will not be permitted to enter without an RSVP. If you plan to attend, please register online or send a registration form request to soundmoneyproject@atlasnetwork.org.

    Participants include Matt Kibbe, President and CEO of the FreedomWorks Foundation, Alejandro Chafuen, President of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Dr. Judy Shelton, Co-Director of the Sound Money Project and Professor Lawrence White, George Mason University.

    The event will coincide with the official launch of the publication, A Guide to Sound Money, an educational pamphlet available through the joint support of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation and FreedomWorks Foundation. The Guide’s author, Judy Shelton, is a prominent economist who predicted the downfall of the Soviet empire, author of Money Meltdown, and works with both organizations on monetary policy.

    The Guide does not advocate any single approach to achieving sound money. It lays out core principles to define the fundamental purposes of money and to acknowledge the intent of the Founders in granting money powers to Congress.  The entire Guide can be accessed in pdf form at: http://soundmoneyproject.org/ and printed copies will be made available at the event.
