Stephen Moore and Thea Lee debated the merits of public sector unions. In a mock trial, Ms. Lee, assisted by Professor Shoemaker, defended against a charge that public service employee unions have harmed the country. Mr. Moore prosecuted. They made opening and closing statements and examined witnesses. The jury found against Ms. Lee in a split decision. Jeffrey Verdon presided.

Stephen Moore is the co-author of Return to Prosperity. Thea Lee is the co-author of The Field Guide to the Global Economy.

“Public Unions: Good or Bad for America?” was “The Big Debate” held at FreedomFest, a libertarian conference held annually at Bally’s in Las Vegas. close
