The second day of the Liberty Seminars in Slovenia focused on the debt crisis, and included the screening of movies. We kicked off with a documentary film from a three-part series, "The Commanding Heights: The Battle for the World Economy", before engaging in a discussion with Stephen Davies of the Institute of Economic Affairs, who joined us for a second time to discuss the history of trade.
We had a busy afternoon too. We watched another documentary film titled "Overdose: A Film about the Next Financial Crisis". After a short break, two discussion sessions in smaller groups were conducted simultaneously. As such, Philip Booth ran a discussion on the causes and consequences of the fiscal crisis to the participants of the Liberty Academy, while Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute discussed the financial and sovereign debt crises with the participants of the Liberty Camp.
Day two ended with a discussion with the Director General of the Institute of Economic Affairs Mark Littlewood on the debt and spending of the state.
