Why we Left the Left

Please join us for Cascade’s monthly Policy Picnic Wednesday, October 17 at noon. Cascade CEO John A. Charles, Jr. will discuss his intellectual journey from leading a well-known environmental group to becoming the president of Oregon’s only free market think tank.

Why is central planning such a seductive concept? And why do some people embrace planning and then leave it behind? John recently published an essay on this topic in the book Why we Left the Left, and participants in the Wednesday lunch will receive a shortened version of the essay.

Admission is free. Please bring your own lunch. Coffee and cookies will be served. Space is limited to ten guests on a first come, first served basis, so sign up early. To RSVP, email Kathryn Hickok at kathryn@cascadepolicy.org or call 503-242-0900.
