Energy: Issues & Controversies
November 9-12, 2014

But increasing political opposition to energy development suggests a lack of consensus as to whether our nation’s energy wealth is good or bad. This second CCA of the 2014-2015 academic year, co-sponsored by the Ludwig von Mises Lecture Series, will examine issues and controversies related to energy and the environment.
