The media and politicians are creating a "culture of alarmism" about food, household products, the weather, even children's school supplies, which is enabling power-hungry regulators and policymakers to increasingly limit what's available to Americans while stripping away freedom. We need to be aware of how this culture of alarmism reduces our choices, hurts our economy, and ultimately makes our life less enjoyable. 

We hope you will join the Independent Women's Forum and America's Future Foundation on Wednesday, February 27th at 6:30pm ET for a dynamic discussion on four different issue areas where alarmism is being employed by policymakers to push a regulatory agenda: obesity, chemical, agriculture, and environmental and energy.

Details are below – RSVP HERE. 

The panel, called "Scared to Death: How Government Nannies are Creating a Culture of Alarmism," will feature four speakers covering food, chemicals, agriculture and energy–all focusing on scare tactics employed by health advocates and government nannies in order to further their regulatory goals.

Scared to Death Panel
Date: 2/27/13
Time: 6:30-8:30-ish
Location: The Fund for American Studies
