The Hertog Young Professionals Program announces a new seminar:

The Hertog Young Professionals Program is now accepting applications for its Winter 2013 seminar, The Transformation of American Government, with Christopher DeMuth, distinguished fellow at Hudson Institute and former administrator of OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

Meeting at Hudson Institute for three hours on five Wednesday nights, from February 6 to March 13, 2013 (skipping Feb. 20), this seminar will explore two changes in American government: massive debt burdens at all levels of government and the transfer of legislative policy-making functions from the Congress to the Executive Branch and the Federal Reserve Board. The seminar will focus on the political roots of these changes, their effects in particular areas of current policy/regulation and political debate, and the prospects for institutional reform.

Students accepted for the program will participate free of charge–all assigned readings will be provided as will a casual meal at each session.
