2020 Freedom & Opportunity Keynote Speaker
Mr. Jeffrey A. Tucker
Editorial Director, American Institute for Economic Research (AIER)
Mr. Jeffrey Tucker is a tireless and principled advocate of individual freedom, striving daily to expose the destructive ends of unchecked and arbitrary government action. His new book, Liberty or Lockdown, lays out the crucial choice of our time amidst the coronavirus pandemic: Will Americans rise to the challenge of liberty and personal responsibility, or be subsumed by an overbearing, paternalistic philosophy of government intervention in all aspects of daily life?
This September, AIER was the site of the groundbreaking Great Barrington Declaration, a statement crafted by three of the world’s top epidemiologists in opposition to the devastating lockdown policies imposed across the country. As of this writing, the declaration has been signed by almost 11,000 medical and public health scientists and almost 550,000 members of the general public.In addition to managing AIER’s publications, Mr. Tucker is a contributor to Forbes, the author of nine books and many thousands of articles in the scholarly and popular press. He speaks widely on topics of economics, technology, social philosophy, and culture.
