Here’s an article from the University of Chicago’s student newspaper about the upcoming live debate on eminent domain between the Mises Institute’s own Walter Block, who says we don’t need it, and the University of Chicago’s Richard Epstein, who says we must have it.
Are you in the Chicago area, and interested in attending this historic live debate between leaders of the Austrian and Chicago schools of economics?
Here are the details:
What: Walter Block and Richard Epstein debate “Do We Really Need Eminent Domain?” Sponsored by the Mises Institute. The debate is free and open to the public.
Where: The University of Chicago Law School, first floor, Room IV. The Law School is located at 1111 East 60th Street in Chicago.
When: Monday, May 10, beginning promptly at 12:13 p.m. It is critical that everyone who wishes to attend arrives on time. No one will be admitted after the debate begins.
Parking: Free parking is available on the street, but finding a space may be difficult at this time of day. There is a pay lot on University Avenue (“Lexington Lot U”), between 58th and 59th Streets. From the lot, walk south, across the Midway, to 60th Street and the Law School. An online campus map is available here.
