Big Government Policies That Limit Opportunity

Lisa Knepper

Expanding government is frequently seen as good for those in need.  Limiting government is often portrayed as hurting them.  The reality is that, in many cases, government policy can make it more difficult for those striving to make ends meet.


Join us as leading experts explore the damage to the poor from misguided economic policies, with an emphasis on harmful regulations and cronyism.  Discussions will include how policies ranging from occupational licensure, energy regulations, and ridesharing restrictions, to land use policies create significant harm to the poor by limiting opportunity and driving up consumer prices.
