Cato University 2006 Cornerstone of Liberty: Property Rights in 21st-Century America



Cato has announced the location and topic of this year's summer seminar. Although I am not lecturing at this one, I have often done so in the past and can report it is a wonderful event, in part because the "students" are of all ages, professions, and walks of life. In addition, there is always a contingent of college students on scholarships mixed in. In past years, I have taken both my parents and my children. The folks at Cato have said it is OK to advertise the discount for pre-registration.
Cato University  July 26 - 30, 2006, Don CeSar Beach Resort  St. Pete Beach, Florida

Cato University has become one of the Cato Institute's premier annual events. Invitations will be going out soon, but we want to be sure you receive early notice of the dates and have a chance to join us at a special preregistration rate of $1550/single and $2945/couple ($1700/single and $3230/couple after June 23).
This year's program promises to be one of the most compelling eye- and mind-opening programs we've created. How interesting? Consider this: Is your home in danger? Could other people just take your property from you if they think they have a better use for it? Yes, they absolutely can. And in many communities around the country it has occurred. How? What can be done to prevent it? Join us in Florida this July and learn what has happened, where things are heading, and how you can vigorously guard property rights against property theft.

You'll enhance your mind, spend your time with fascinating people from around the country, and have plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy yourself at the world-class Don CeSar Beach Resort. What a way to learn! So, join us; we look forward to having you as part of this important Cato University.

I am opening comments in case there are any VC readers who have attended a previous Summer University and who want to report their experiences. (Extraneous comments may be deleted.)

Well, you may delete this extraneous comment, but I think the graphic is poorly done. The home, suspended in chains from a hook, appears suspended over flames in the CATO emblem. Is this the effect Cato University is promoting?

$3000K per couple is a bit steep for this BUSL grad (and former contracts student of Messr. Barnett), but I'm genuinely curious about the summer scene at Cato University in St. Pete, FL. Sounds like it might be pretty fun. Having never owned a house, however, I find it hard to get all hot and bothered about real property and eminent domain issues. Maybe I'll read Structure of Liberty one of these days and find out.

It's besides the point, but I can testify that The Don CeSar is one of the nicest places in central Florida. It was built back when the only way it could be reached was by yacht. Definitely a beautiful place.
