Good intentions gone wrong tonight

Tonight (Monday, January 14, 2013) Americans for Prosperity features selections from Good Intentions Gone Wrong by John Stossel.

The meeting is from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, at Spangles Restaurant, 612 S. Broadway, Wichita, Kansas. Topics from the video presentation:

Job Creation Gone Wrong
Who creates jobs? And who creates jobs the best? Can the government help, or do government attempts to create jobs lead to inefficiencies and waste? Do government regulations help or hinder job creation?

Innovation: Private vs. Public
Can politics and politicians solve all our problems? Is government more effective than private enterprise? Can’t we count on the entrepreneurial spirit to innovate and to develop solutions to the problems we face?

Collaboration Leads to Innovation
Why has life changed so much over the past few centuries, after remaining relatively the same for hundreds of thousands of years? Why does it seem that changes occur faster now than in the past? How have our lives been affected by innovation? What does the future hold?

Mystery of Happiness: Is Happiness Relative?
What makes people happy? Are we happiest when we’re doing well, or when we’re doing better than others? On what do we base our happiness?
