Freedom Fest Producer: Economic Debate to be Highlight of Event

By    |   Friday, 19 Jun 2015 03:03 PM

Freedom Fest producer Mark Skousen tells Newsmax TV the debate between liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman and Stephen Moore, chief economist at The Heritage Foundation and former columnist for The Wall Street Journal, will be the highlight of Freedom Fest.

"It is going to be electrifying. We're going to have major media coverage, we're going to be talking about the No. 1 New York Times columnist vs. the No. 1 Wall Street Journal columnist, Keynesian economics, big government vs. small government and supply side economics," Skousen told John Bachman on Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now" on Friday.

"We're going to talk about taxes like the flat tax that's being proposed right now. We're going to talk about austerity vs. the national debt," he explained. "We will talk about the minimum wage and other artificial ways to raise wages, but we want to focus on genuine ways. Economists can come together on these issues to talk about how we can turn the country around and how we can have economic growth without running into all of these problems."

Skousen explained that the theme of Freedom Fest, which takes place in Las Vegas on July 8-11, is "Can We Restore the American Dream?" And this will also be the theme of the Krugman and Moore debate, which will be moderated by John Stossel of the Fox Business Network.

"Of course, Krugman and Moore are going to be really at each other's throats probably on how to achieve this, but maybe we can come together because our idea here at Freedom Fest is to gather together bright minds who can maybe come together and not label each other, not be divisive, but come up with best solutions to our real problems in the country," he said.

"That's what Freedom Fest is all about."
