Weekly Meeting – Ron Nate, The Battle for Freedom is Real: Idaho Needs the IFF and Idaho Needs You – Snake River Event Center (Shilo Inn, Idaho Falls)

May 24 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

We are in a war.  Economically, politically, culturally, and socially, and we must win.  The Idaho Freedom Foundation makes a real difference in Idaho with its Freedom Index and its continued efforts to promote liberty principles while holding officials accountable.  The tireless, conservative, family values, people of Idaho are the ones who will save the state from federal and liberal takeover, win back our lost liberties, and restore our great traditions.

Ronald M. Nate, PhD, MA, is a professor of economics at BYU-Idaho, a former state representative in the Idaho House, and a senior policy fellow at the Idaho Freedom Foundation.  In his economics work, he specializes in applied microeconomics, public economics, quantitative methods, economics of education, poverty economics, and public choice. He has been teaching for 28 years, beginning at the University of Connecticut, Ohio University-Eastern, and the last 21 years at BYU-Idaho. Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ron studied at the University of Utah, and earned a Ph.D. in economics at the University of Connecticut. He served in the Idaho House of Representatives for three terms (2014-2018, 2020-2022); he currently works for the Idaho Freedom Foundation and serves on the Board of Scholars at the Foundation for Economics Education.  Ron and his wife, Maria, have four children – all attending BYU in Utah.  He enjoys traveling, backpacking, model rocketry, and chocolate.
