“You can never change the politicians until you change the people who elect them.” — H. L. (Bill) Richardson

For the past 40 years, I’ve been teaching sound, free-market economics at several major colleges and universities around the country, including Columbia Business School and now Chapman University.

I’m amazed at how much impact a professor can have on student attitudes when it comes to money, politics and culture.

In addition to teaching, I have also written several influential textbooks, including “Economic Logic,” a no-nonsense textbook on free-market economics, now in its fifth edition, and “The Making of Modern Economics,” now in its fourth edition, which offers devastating arguments against Keynesianism, Marxism and socialism.

Recent surveys have concluded that a majority of students prefer socialism over capitalism. That’s largely because campus professors have brainwashed them. They are critical of capitalism and complain about inequality, environmental damage, materialism, business fraud and even racism. They ignore all the good that businesses have done to create well-paying jobs, reduce poverty and enhance the community.

How to Counter the Anti-Capitalist Bias in Education

Many pro-market business leaders are fed up with college graduates who have a strong anti-capitalistic mentality when they are hired. Many parents are concerned, too.

What can we do about it? Ron Simon, a successful manufacturer in California and author of the book “Don’t Tell Me I Can’t,” is putting his money where his mouth is, and he has asked me and my wife to put together a one-week “Economics of Life” summer academy.

Special One-Week Seminar

How Would You Like to Send Your Son or Daughter to a One-Week Seminar on Free-Market Economics with a Full Scholarship?

It includes a one-day trip to Disneyland after the seminar.

Jo Ann and I are in charge of the entire seminar, including choosing the faculty.  Your teenager will learn:

What Drives the Economy?

Personal Finance 101

The Magic of Entrepreneurship

Democratic Socialism vs Democratic Capitalism

Why Some Countries Are Rich and Others Are Poor

Why America Remains the Greatest Land of Opportunity

The seminar takes place on July 24-30, and it is open to students who are graduating high school or completing their first year of college this year.

Students will be housed two-to-a-room at Chapman University, and chaperones will be provided. The scholarship covers tuition, learning materials, room, meals and snacks and a ticket to Disneyland. (Travel to the seminar is not included.)

Inoculate your child against the brainwashing they are likely to encounter from college professors. Our faculty includes:

– Mark Skousen (presidential fellow, Chapman University)

– Jo Ann Skousen (professor of English literature and poetry at Chapman)

– Jim Doti (professor of economics and former president of Chapman)

– Mario Leone (director of the Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Ethics)

– Ken Schoolland (professor of economics, Hawaii Pacific University)

– Li Schoolland (Acton Institute, Director of External Relations, Asia Pacific)

– Sean Flynn (professor of economics, Scripps College, Clermont University, and the author of  “The Cure That Works: How to Have the World’s Best Health Care System at a Quarter of the Price”)

– Jim Woods (editor of Successful Investing and co-editor of Fast Money Alert)

– Candace Smith (educator, lecturer on business etiquette)

The “Economics of Life” summer academy 2022 is limited to 100 students. It includes lively presentations, group discussions, interactive games and activities, films and friendship. We’re even sponsoring a class on business etiquette.

The first 30 students to apply will receive a $2,500 scholarship to pay for the tuition, plus room and board, the trip to Disneyland and all other expenses except travel to and from the seminar. Students are expected to attend all activities.

Just fly or drive your son or daughter to the Chapman campus, and we will take care of the rest.

You Nailed It!

The Ultimate Underdog Story

If you haven’t heard, this year’s Kentucky Derby was the most exciting in memory. This was because a last-minute substitute horse, Rich Strike, struck gold when it came from way behind to win the greatest horse race in 100 years.

Rich Strike was substituted when another horse dropped out, and it became #21. Against 80-to-1 odds, it won the race.

Everyone was in shock, including the owners.

Here is the best view of the come-from-behind victory.

I like the name, Rich Strike. It reminds me of my penny mining stocks — hopefully they will go from last to first! 🙂
