AHI Undergraduate Fellow Max Schnidman

The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI)  is pleased to announce that the Center for Study of Public Choice at George Mason University has chosen AHI Undergraduate Fellow Max Schnidman to attend this year’s Outreach Conference. The Center “builds on the groundbreaking economic and political science theories” of James M. Buchanan, who was was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 1986.  This year’s conference will be held August 10-12, 2012, at the Mason Inn on the Fairfax campus of George Mason University.

Mr. Schnidman, from Freeport New York, majors in Public Policy, with minors in economics and philosophy and aspires to a career that combines economics and law.  He has served for two years as co-leader of the AHI’s Publius Society, which is devoted to engaging students, faculty, and citizens in intensive discussions of American politics and political thinking.

“Max is a stellar student, hardworking, intellectually curious, responsible, and committed to excellence,” commented AHI Charter Fellow Robert Paquette.  He not only leads the AHI’s Publius Society, but is a serious intellectual presence at many AHI events.  In the age of big government gone wild, we need to encourage more gifted undergraduates in thinking about the difference between public choice and public policy.  He will benefit enormously from this opportunity.”
