Last week, I spoke before 750 people for Virginia Beach’s annual “State of the City” address. It was a piece of cake!
I also spoke before the 24 brightest high school seniors in Virginia Beach, who are competing for a large scholarship. That was intimidating! These kids are so bright. They asked questions about the difference between Keynesian economics and Austrian economics. They asked how to protect themselves from people like Bernie Maddoff. Amazingly, they seemed resigned, but not angry, about inheriting all the debt we are piling on them. They were a much tougher audience.
Sometimes, it is nice to be reminded that our country’s future is in good hands, indeed!
