Grassroot Scholar takes freedom message to ‘Iolani School 

Grassroot Scholar Ken Schoolland spoke earlier this month to scores of students at ‘Iolani School about how economics can help shape a prosperous world.

Addressing the school’s economics club and about a dozen separate classes, Schoolland talked specifically about economic freedom, which evidence from around the world shows is associated with improved standards of living, including less poverty, better healthcare, longer lifespans, greater technological developments and many other benefits. 

Schoolland is an associate professor of economics at Hawaii Pacific University and author of the book “The Adventures of Jonathan Gullible,” which has been translated into 40 languages. He was invited to address the students by ‘Iolani AP economics teacher Lance Suzuki. In the photo above, Schoolland was talking about “the bizarre economics of shipping oil” caused by the federal Jones Act.

If you would like Schoolland to address your student, business or community group, please call 591-9193 or email info@grassrootinstitute.org.
