Heartland Events

An Evening with John Stossel

Union League Club
65 West Jackson
April 15, 2012, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The Heartland Institute hosted John Stossel – on Tax Day 2012, no less – for the Chicago stop on his book tour for No They Can’t: Why Government Fails – and Individuals Succeed.

More than 100 people spent an evening with the libertarian star of the Fox Business Channel as he talks about and signed copies of his best-seller arguing for smaller government, freer markets, and more liberty.

A self-described skeptic, Stossel has dismantled society’s sacred cows with unerring common sense. Now he debunks the most sacred of them all: our intuition and belief that government can solve our problems.

In No, They Can’t, the New York Times bestselling author and Fox News commentator insists that we discard that idea of the “perfect” government — left or right — and retrain our brain to look only at the facts, to rethink our lives as independent individuals — and fast.
