Defining itself in opposition to once-dominant</p><p>classical liberal theories that stressed the roles of private property, individual liberty, and limited government,</p><p>progressivism received its highest expression during Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, yet its influence</p><p>continues to dominate our politics today. The signs are clear, however, that government is creaking under the</p><p>enormous weight of this expansion. In his new book, Richard Epstein argues that our overregulated state</p><p>allows too much discretion on the part of regulators, which results in arbitrary, unfair decisions, rent-seeking,</p><p>and other abuses. Please join us for what promises to be an illuminating exchange of ideas about our current</p><p>state of affairs.</p><p>Thursday, December 15, 2011</p><p>Noon</p><p>(Luncheon to follow)</p><p>Mount Vernon Place</p><p>Undercroft Auditorium</p><p>900 Massachusetts Avenue NW</p><p>Washington, DC 20001</p>;id=f1ed77e301&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=f1ed77e301&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=f1ed77e301&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=6b49f775b8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=6b49f775b8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=6b49f775b8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=6b49f775b8&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=f1ed77e301&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=f1ed77e301&amp;e=bc2b99230e;id=f1ed77e301&amp;e=bc2b99230e</li><li><p>8/3/2019 bMichael Events This Week 14 December 2011</p><p> 4/14</p><p>Cato Book Forums and luncheons are free of charge.</p><p>To register,, fax(202) 371-0841,</p><p>or call(202) 789-5229by noon on Wednesday, December 14, 2011.</p><p>If you can't make it to the Forum, watch the archived video online at</p><p></p><p>Videos are usually available 24 hours after the event.</p><p>Copyright 2011 Cato Institute</p><p>1000 Massachusetts Ave NW</p><p>Washington, DC 20001</p><p>David Broza concert</p><p>Thursday, December 15, 8:00 p.m.</p><p>Sixth &amp; I Historic Synagogue</p><p>600 I Street NW</p><p>Washington, DC 20001</p><p>This event is FREE, but RSVP is mandatory.</p><p></p><p>For decades, singer-songwriter David Broza has been steadily gaining areputation throughout the world as one of the great internationalsongwriters and performers.
