UNC to host discussion on generational equity on Nov. 13

11/4/2013

The University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School will host a free, public discussion on “Generational Equity: The Impact of the Federal Budget on Young Americans,” on Wed., Nov. 13.

Educator Geoffrey Canada and investor Stanley Druckenmiller will speak at 7 p.m. in Memorial Hall at UNC-Chapel Hill. To RSVP, please click here.

Following a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece in which they wrote of their shared concern that “government spending levels are unsustainable,” Canada and Druckenmiller, though from different backgrounds and with different political beliefs, united to bring their message to the wider public, appearing on national television and speaking at college campuses. They warn that failing to reform an entitlement culture, reaffirm long-run objectives, and re-establish a common purpose will mean diminished opportunities for America’s younger generations.

The event is presented by UNC Kenan-Flagler and The Robertson Scholars Leadership Program.
