Geoff Canada & Stanley Druckenmiller | Generational Theft | How Entitlement Spending is Stealing Opportunity from America's Youth

Following a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece in which they write of their shared concern that "government spending levels are unsustainable," educator Geoffrey Canada '74 and investor Stanley Druckenmiller '75, though from different backgrounds and with different political beliefs, have united to bring their message to the masses, appearing on CNBC's Closing Bell and Squawk Box and MSNBC's Morning Joe.

They warn that failing to reform an entitlement culture, reaffirm long-run objectives, and re-establish a common purpose will mean diminished opportunities for America's youth.

Tickets required and available at the Smith Union Info Desk on April 15th for Bowdoin Students, Faculty and Staff. Members of the public may pick up tickets beginning on April 29th. Please contact the Events Office by e-mail or at 725-3433.

The event will also be streamed live on the Bowdoin Daily Sun.
