Wall Street Journal Writer Slated to Speak at MTSU

Stephen Moore to Discuss Government, Taxes, State of National Economy

Stephen Moore, senior economic writer for The Wall Street Journal and a member of the WSJ’s editorial board, will lecture on current events Thursday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the State Farm Lecture Hall of MTSU’s Business and Aerospace Building.

Moore is the author of five books, most recently Bullish on Bush: How the Ownership Society is Making America Richer. He also is the former president of the Free Enterprise Fund, a nonprofit advocacy group for limited government and tax relief, and the founder and former president of the Club for Growth, a political action committee committed to less government and lower taxation.

A former consultant to the National Economic Commission and ex-research director for the Commission on Privatization under President Regan, Moore’s resume also includes stints at two Washington-based think tanks, the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute.

A question-and-answer session will follow the lecture. This event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Jennings A. Jones College of Business, the Wright Travel Chair in Entrepreneurship and the Young America’s Foundation. For more information, contact Doug Tatum at 615-898-2785 or
