At the 2012 Atlas Summit, Professor Stephen Hicks (CEE’s Executive Director) presented an Objectivist perspective on entrepreneurship and public policy.

The lecture’s themes include:
* Our schizophrenic public policy culture: health, sex, religion, money
* What wealth is: tangible, intangible, and institutional assets
* Entrepreneurism as a cultural asset
* Objectivism’s entrepreneurial ethic
* Principled strategy in a mixed economy
* Three challenges: abstractness, easy disagreement, being principled among the unprincipled
* Immigration policy
* Education policy
* Entrepreneurism and meeting the three challenges
