Scenes from the Bush Institute Economic Debate

February 1, 2013 1 minute Read by Matthew Denhart

At the Bush Institute we believe better education about economic principles is fundamental to achieving stronger economic growth. That is why in 2012 we launched a national economic debate program for high school debaters. Last October more than 100 high school students from around the country converged on Dallas, Texas, to debate the issues of infrastructure, property rights, and economic growth. The weekend was a huge success. Here is some early footage from the weekend. Check it out below:
