Civita, in cooperation with the University of Oslo, invites you to a breakfast meeting Monday August 20th, 8.00-9.00 am.
Most politicians emphasize the virtues of higher education. However, does higher education actually impart critical knowledge and skills, or are we spending hundreds of billions of dollars annually to offer nothing more than an expensive signaling device? Is the education system mostly a waste of time and money or is accessible higher education critical to secure opportunities for all?
Bryan Caplan, professor of economics at George Mason University, research fellow at the Mercatus Center and adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute
Edwin Leuven, professor of economics at University of Oslo.
Breakfast is served from 7.30 am. A Q&A session will follow after the introduction.
The meeting will take place at Restaurant Christiania, Nedre Vollgt. 19. Entrance via Stortingsgaten.
