In the fall of 2006, Hillsdale College hosted the first Free Market Forum on “The Role of Markets and Governments in Pursuing the Common Good.” The program included presentations by Rev. Robert Sirico of the Acton Institute, Richard Epstein of the University of Chicago Law School, and author George Gilder. In addition, four panel discussions covered a wide range of topics that incorporated free market strategies.
The Free Market Forum seeks to encourage the study of free enterprise. Consequently, over 50 invitees, including faculty members from colleges and universities around the country with ties to the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities or the Acton Institute, attended as guests of the Free Market Forum. Included in this group were representatives from ten state-based policy centers. These scholars and state policy leaders came together for a dynamic exchange of information, to enhance the discussions at the colloquium, and to encourage the exchange of ideas in the future.
