Entering the Prosperity Zone . . .
You've probably already heard about the Prosperity Zone movement, but want to know more. Here's your chance!
On September 6 at noon in Senate Hearing Room 1 at the Arizona State Capital, the Joint Ad Hoc Committee on Prosperity Districts will conduct a fact finding hearing into the Prosperity Zone Compact.
Americans for Prosperity-Arizona is offering free bus service from the Tucson area to get there.
Three guest speakers will explain the constitutional and policy merits of the effort:
William Boyes, PhD – Founding Director, Center for the Study of Economic Liberty; Emeritus Professor of Economics, Arizona State University; will speak about how Arizona will benefit from the Prosperity Zone reforms
Ilya Shapiro, JD – Senior Fellow in Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute; will discuss the Constitutionality of the Prosperity Zone Model Policy
Dean Clancy, MA – Scholar, Compact for America Education Foundation, former VP of Policy for FreedomWorks; will present on the regulatory best practices of the Prosperity Zone Compact
You'll learn how the Prosperity Zone Compact promises to empower local communities to hit the reset button on wasteful government, replacing job-killing regulations with 21st century best practices.
This one idea could double or even triple economic growth in Arizona, create jobs on a scale not seen in decades, generate opportunities to out-compete anyone in the world, and inspire the rest of the country to restore free markets.
You'll see why the Prosperity Zone Compact is truly federalism in action, in which reform is driven from the grassroots-up, and from the inside-out within Arizona and other states that join the movement.
If you can't wait to learn more, check out our one-pager and executive summary of our working draft. If you want still more, you can click here for the current working draft of the model policy, here for Professor Boyes' economic analysis of its implications, and here for Compact for America Policy Brief No. 10 on its constitutionality.
And if you don't have time to immerse yourself in all things Prosperity Zone, please spend a few minutes listening to this short interview on the James T. Harris Show.
After learning more about this powerful idea, I think you'll understand why Compact for America Educational Foundation has joined forces with Federalism in Action and NeWAY Foundation to lead educational efforts for the Prosperity Zone Compact.
Hope to see you there!
