Press Release from The American Principles Project

August conference to challenge Federal Reserve policy head on:  are Central Banks the problem or the solution?

More than two dozen speakers to participate, including Jim DeMint, Dr. Benn Steil, John Stossel, and more

Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Today the American Principles Project announced a list of more than two dozen high profile speakers that will be participating in the first official Jackson Hole Summit on August 27-29, 2015 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The Summit — which has become even more relevant as Janet Yellen’s Federal Reserve struggles before Congress — will take place directly opposite of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City’s annual Jackson Hole Symposium, the flagship conference of the Federal Reserve System.

More than two dozen high profile speakers will be presenting at the Jackson Hole Summit, including John Stossel, host of Stossel on Fox Business; Dr. Benn Steil, PhD,Senior Fellow and Director of International Economics on the Council on Foreign Relations; Jim DeMint, President of the Heritage Foundation; members of both the British Parliament and United States Congress; leading economists; and respected political leaders from all over the ideological spectrum.

The purpose of APP’s Jackson Hole Summit is to push the debate over monetary policy into the public arena and educate citizens about how the Federal Reserve’s policies are fundamental to economic growth. The Jackson Hole Summit will feature many of the best and brightest economists in the world, including participants from prestigious institutions, such as the Young America’s Foundation, The Heritage Foundation, The Atlas Network, and England’s The Cobden Centre.

All presidential candidates from both major parties have been invited to present their vision to maximize America’s future prosperity and strengthen the United States’ position in driving the global economy.
