Special Program Held on Wednesday September 28. Politics and Markets

The Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship, as part of the Your Wealth Lecture Series and working towards our goal of improving economic literacy, hosted Michael van Beek on Wednesday September 28.  He participated in two events of value to NMU faculty, staff, students and friends. Michael Van Beek is the director of research for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy.   

  1. Students witnessed how politics allocates resources differently than individuals living in households and operating businesses and felt why these differences between political and market allocation​ matter. Watch the video here.
  2. Participants learnt more about why the ​cost of government includes more than just taxes.  Mr. van Beek presented his research for 40 minutes.  A Q&A session followed.  Watch the video here.
