Free Markets 101 was Southern Miss Gulf Coast’s first event and it was a success. We are a little behind due to heavy construction on our campus and a lack of availability to table events. However, the liberty gods must have been on our side since our event was the day after Rand Paul’s historic filibuster, which already had a lot of people buzzing about politics.
We set up the World’s Smallest Political Quiz to attract students, who were very curious. A lot of students were surprised to see their results which gave us a great opportunity to discuss both free markets and libertarianism in general. We gave out so much of the free market materials, as well as the philosophy cards and pocket Constitutions. We are having another meeting in two weeks to welcome in all new members and share the overall philosophy of YAL.
