If you cannot join us, no need to RSVP. 

Entry: Free but a voluntary donation towards catering costs and the work of the FMF in general would be greatly appreciated.

The presentation will cover: 

Popular attitudes about labour, entrepreneurship and wealth creation, for example, can frame a public policy debate before anyone has even begun to make an argument. To convince more hearts and minds then, pro-freedom advocates must supplement their message of economic efficiency with a broader appeal that recognizes the role social attitudes play in shaping our economic landscape. Think tanks are critical to long term positive change.

Note:

The FMF is an independent, non-profit, public benefit organisation, created in 1975 by pro-free market business and civil society national bodies to work for a non-racial, free and prosperous South Africa. As a policy organisation it promotes sound economic policies and the principles of good law. As a think tank it seeks and puts forward solutions to some of the country’s most pressing problems: unemployment, poverty, growth, education, health care, electricity supply, and more. The FMF was instrumental in the post-apartheid negotiations and directly influenced the Constitutional Commission to include the property rights clause: a critical cornerstone of economic freedom.

The FMF has a wealth of information in papers, articles and opinion pieces available on the website which can influence the public debate and present alternative policies to the people of South Africa. Please look at our website www.freemarketfoundation.com.
