Economic Thinking Mission and Goals
Economic Thinking is a program of E Pluribus Unum Films, an educational nonprofit dedicated to teaching how economic freedom, property rights, and the rule of law bring progress and prosperity in America and around the world.
E Pluribus Unum Films was founded in June, 2000, taking on Economic Thinking programs in 2004. Through seminars, workshops, guest talks, and our website EconomicThinking.org, Economic Thinking reaches a growing number of high school, homeschool, and college students each year. In 2008 we added a full semester curriculum, Economics In A Box. In 2009 we created libertyflix.com to bring dramatic and documentary films on freedom to students, teachers, and families.
Economic Thinking Programs
In Your Community: Workshops and Guest Talks
Economic Thinking workshops, and guest talks connect high school, homeschool, and college students directly to leading scholars from well established free-market groups. We target speech and debate students because they invest large amounts of time and intellectual energy in researching public policy issues, and put their newly learned ideas to work in debate arguments and cases. Speech and debate students are “idea” leaders among their peers, and continue to influence others through college and in their professional careers. We are working with speech and debate clubs nationwide to deepen the discussion of debate policy topics.
libertyflix.com recommends dramatic and documentary films on freedom for students, teachers, and families. We believe human liberty is delicate. libertyflix.com is a collection of films about Liberty, the most fundamental human right. Understanding how freedom has been lost, how it has been restored, and how it can be fostered, all add to the potential to keep freedom alive. Libertyflix was formed to make available to the world the work that many great and talented artists have created concerning freedom. Films are available for purchase or streaming through Amazon.com or other distributors.
