We are happy to announce a milestone nomination from Mark Skousen, who is a foremost leader of the liberty movement! Skousen is the Founder of Freedom Fest (the largest annual gathering of free market minds), the Editor of Forecasts & Strategies (a leading investment newsletter), currently featured in Forbes magazine for a revolutionary new analysis of national income and expenditures. Additionally, he was the former President of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE, the nation’s oldest free market think tank).
The Milton Friedman Prize for Advancing Liberty is presented every other year by the Cato Institute (a FreedomFest sponsor) to an individual who has made a significant contribution to the freedom movement. You can nominate your favorite candidate. The Friedman Prize winner will be announced next year and the award presented at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York on May 21, 2014.
Personally, I recommend Ken Schoolland, professor of economics at Hawaii Pacific University, whose book “The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible” has been translated into 50 languages. I consider it the best introduction to free-market economics ever invented. It’s fun to read for both young people and those of us with a Ph. D. in economics. Ken also hosts the Liberty Camps in Eastern Europe and China every year and is a regular at FreedomFest.
If you too think that ISIL President Ken Schoolland is worthy of this prize, then feel free to put him down in a:
Jonathan Gullible, which is now has 73 publications in 48 languages, 3 audio books, 3 plays touring Eastern Europe and Africa, and even more books, plays, musicals and even an animated film in progress! Trying not to toot our horn too much further—it has also racked up numerous awards and endorsements, and is supported by dozens of international public policy institutes worldwide. The majority of these activities have been made possible by ISIL.
