2007 Capital Campus Texas Retreat

Oct 23, 2007Oct 25, 2007

The Texas Public Policy Foundation and the Mercatus Center at George Mason University will co-host a retreat that will provide legislative staffers with an academic perspective on today's pressing policy issues.

The retreat is designed to bridge the gap between academic theory and practice: participants will receive an in-depth understanding of the interaction of law, economics, and public policy and then reflect on how these lessons could better inform Texas policy makers in their daily work.

Participants can expect:

  • Opportunities to meet and discuss ideas with prominent scholars and new colleagues from all areas of state government and from both sides of the aisle;
  • Scholar-led conversations and interactive sessions with fellow colleagues;
  • Specific discussions on the role economics play in growth, criminal justice, and the future of health care;
  • The chance to acquire innovative tools that will help decision makers better analyze public policy.
