Cookinham on Monopoly and Free Enterprise on February 8

Note: New Decade, More Liberty! QL moves to its new meeting location in February. Details:

Join us at our February 8 Meeting: Saturday, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm, at the Irish Cottage Pub in Forest Hills, 108-07 72nd Ave (corner of Austin St, 2-3 blocks from the E/F train station, LIRR, and Q60 bus)

Frederick Cookinham, author of THE AGE OF RAND: IMAGINING AN OBJECTIVIST FUTURE WORLD, and MAN IN THE PLACE OF THE GODS: WHAT CITIES MEAN, will speak to the Queens Libertarians on February 8 on “Monopoly and Free Enterprise in Early New York.”

According to Cookinham, “The Dutch government and the Dutch West India Company tried both monopoly and monopsony before they allowed settlers to practice free enterprise. I will show what worked and didn’t work, and show how New York City and State began and how New York City became the greatest boomtown in the world. I will include the economics of the Revolution and the building of the Erie Canal, and show how this history has been twisted into socialist propaganda.”

For our meetings, while we will pass the hat, there is no mandatory donation. However, all attendees should purchase $10.00 in food and drink over the two hour period. There is some parking available, and nearby subway and bus transportation along Queens Blvd at this more central location. Join us on our continuing journey towards liberty in the new decade!
