Tomorrow night (dinner at 6pm, program at 7pm), Saturday, 5/21/11, I will be debating Herb Grubel on limited government minarchism versus free market anarchism. The venue: Cheers Restaurant, 125 East 2 Street, North Vancouver, BC, Canada (604) 985-9192. I plan on converting Herb to the One True Faith. So, if you’re in the neighborhood, c’mon down. Herb is an emeritus professor of economics at Simon Fraser University, and a long time associate of the (conservative) Fraser Institute.

Social justice, you might say? Give me a break. Hey, we’re often accused of speaking only to the choir. I guarantee that this will not be true in this case. The audience will likely not be libertarian at all. So, if you’re around St. Louis on that date, please consider joining us.7:13 pm on May 20, 2011 Email Walter E. Block
