April 3 PPEC: Monthly Meeting (with Ann Barnhardt)
Notice: This is a controversial speaker.The Pikes Peak Economics Club invited Ms. Ann Barnhardt to speak at their event. It would be an understatement to say that she was upset about the criminal acts that took place in the closing days of MF Global. She is not any less upset at the way the bankruptcy trustee in liquidation is handling the case, which she claims is equally criminal (I'm not arguing). She tells the story of deciding to close her business when she could no longer guarantee that her clients money was safe. As Any Rand would say, "She went Galt." She also told this story in a letter she published on her website that went viral so she has a rather large following.
For the complete details of her presentation please visit the event page at the PPEC by clicking on their logo. The link also has her power point presentation, links to more of her writings, the original letter that went viral, and many other relevant information about this outspoken lady. She actually typed in the description line that was used to title her during the presentation: Irate American.
