About Dr. Barry Asmus - Senior Economist at the National Center for Policy Analysis :
If you're looking for indicators for the quality of a speaker, how does being invited to speak at the re-dedication of the Statue of Liberty sound? This is exactly what happened to Dr. Barry Asmus; it's just one of the many prestigious events to which he's been invited in the course of his more than 25 years of speaking experience.
Dr. Asmus is Senior Economist at the National Center for Policy Analysis, so he doesn't just speak on policy; he implements it, both at home and worldwide. He has given testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee on income tax and was invited to speak to Western European leaders at a privatizing Social Security conference. In his travels around the world he has spoken to government leaders at the highest level in places as diverse as Romania, Albania, China and Peru. He uses these opportunities to spread his key message of a free market, low tax, protected property rights and free trade.
Dr. Asmus has published nine books, including Crossroads: The Great American Experiment that received an HL Mencken Award nomination. He has also received the Freedom Foundation Award at Valley Forge for Private Enterprise Education. When teaching as a Professor of Economics he was twice voted University Professor of the Year.
Featured regularly in prestigious media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, Dr. Asmus has also co-hosted a syndicated radio show, “Perspectives on the Economy." USA Today stated that he is one of the five most requested speakers in the United States.
What Dr. Barry Asmus Talks About:
America's Economic Challenges and Opportunities
What will the 21st century look like for America? What are America's biggest challenges and opportunities? Can we retain the fundamental characteristics that have defined America's greatness? Dr. Asmus describes the three inviolable drivers of a free market economy as well as the three economic freedoms that produce remarkable prosperity.
Globalization and Emerging Markets
Dr. Asmus has 25 years experience with research organizations that economically monitor 180 countries for economic freedom and trade. Worldwide markets and sourcing opportunities make for an exciting future. His new 2013 book with Wayne Grudem, The Poverty of Nations, describes sustainable solutions for poor nations seeking growth and a new beginning.
Energy Powers the Economy
The Stone Age didn't end for lack of stones and neither will the fossil fuel age end for lack of energy. The economic implications of America's discovery of the four largest gas fields in the world through vertical and horizontal drilling and fracking are causing many economists to call it the game changer of the century. The U.S. is now the fastest growing energy producer on the planet. Add the positive geopolitical and wealth producing consequences and our economic future has brightened considerably.
Curing the Health Care Crisis
As The Affordable Care Act imposes $1 trillion of new taxes and another $716 billion from Medicare, the question is what are we getting in return for all of this? Unfavorable population demographics and skyrocketing health care costs only accentuate policies that expand the demand for care and do nothing to increase supply. Can we avoid a European future? The National Center for Policy Analysis believes we can.
Your passion and energy, combined with the insightful message you delivered, helped to make this years events the best ever.
