Rogge Lecture at Wabash Usually Features Libertarian Friendly Lecturers

And it should - Milton Friedman thought very highly of Benjamin Rogge. Rogge also brought 1976 Libertarian presidential candidate Roger McBride to Wabash College during the 1976 presidential campaign.

The 2007 Benjamin A. Rogge Memorial Lecture is Friday, September 28, 2007. It features Michael Mandelbaum, Ph.D., the Christian A. Herter Professor of American Foreign Policy, Chairman of the Department of American Foreign Policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced and International Studies.

His latest book is Democracy's Good Name: The Rise and the Risks of the World's Most Popular Form of Government.

Here's the schedule:

Open Forum with Prof. Mandelbaum
4:15 pm
Baxter Hall, 114
Wabash College
Crawfordsville, Indiana

Rogge Lecture
"Democracy's Good Name: The Rise and Risks of the World's Most Popular Form of Government"
8:00 p.m.
Baxter Hall, Lovell Lecture Room, 101, Wabash College, Crawfordsville, Indiana
Mandelbaum will have a book signing in the Rogge Lounge after the lecture.

The event is free and open to the public.

Mandelbaum and the Cato Institute probably don't see "eye-to-eye" on foreign policy, but I'm sure they have a lot of agreement on many economic policies.
