Due to the growth of the program, the third annual Free Market Forum was held in Dearborn, Michigan, on September 25-27, 2008. Almost 400 faculty members, state policy leaders, and other guests gathered to hear the opening address by political analyst Karl Rove. Other evening speakers were Jonah Goldberg and world renowned economist Hernando de Soto. Once again, over 100 faculty members and state policy leaders from across the United States and Canada took part in the weekend. Professor Ken Elzinga provided valuable insights on "How to Teach Economics" in his Saturday morning lecture. Four panel discussions rounded out the three-day event.The papers from the Free Market Forum 2008 (except Rove, Goldberg, and de Soto) are available for download below.
