MARQUETTE, Mich.—Northern Michigan University will host a Your Wealth lecture titled “Canada’s Incredible Turnaround: What the United States Can Learn from Its Northern Neighbor.” The event will be held at 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 12, in Mead Auditorium in the West Science Building. It is free and open to the public.
Canada is among the top five most economically free countries in the world, according to the Fraser Institute’s annual report. It is well ahead of the United States, which has fallen to 18th overall. Niels Veidhuis, president of the Fraser Institute and co-author of the award-winning The Canadian Century, will explain how Canadians cut government spending, reduced tax rates and balanced budgets while U.S. politicians expanded government.
The Your Wealth Lecture Series is a collaboration of NMU’s College of Arts and Sciences, Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship, Students for Liberty and Economics Student Association.
