Greetings from President Trey Farmer
Dear Harvard Club members,
Greetings! I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these difficult times.
We are planning a series of virtual events for the Fall of 2020 as we do not expect to be able to meet in person. Our first virtual event on August 18 was a joint webinar with several Harvard Clubs across Florida and featured Harvard Law Professor Michael Klarman. Prof. Klarman's talk was titled The Framer’s Coup: The Making of the United States Constitution and discussed the making of the Constitution and its relevance for today's world. This is just the start of an exciting series of webinars featuring prominent Harvard professors. On February 12, 2021 we are thrilled to welcome the preeminent Harvard Economist, Prof. Benjamin M. Friedman AB '66 PhD '71 for a webinar. Prof. Friedman will discuss his new book, Religion and the Rise of Capitalism, which is a major reassessment of the foundations of modern economic thinking that explores the profound influence of an unil-now unrecognized force - religion. Illuminating the origins of the relationship between religious thinking and economic thinking, together with its ongoing consequences, Prof. Friedman will provide valuable insights into our current economic policy debates and the ways it shapes more functional policies for all citizens. Stay tuned as we announce additional virtual events!
