Students attending conference

Update on COVID-19:

It is with great sadness that the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism (CISC) and the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) announce the cancellation of the June 18-21 Economics in the Real World conference at Clemson University. Our highest priority is keeping our students safe, and with COVID-19 still in force across the country, we felt it was in everyone's best interest that we forgo doing an in-person conference this summer. FEE is planning on holding webinars covering many of the same topics, so if you are still interested in learning about economics, government, and personal finance, we encourage you to check out fee.org/events. Tuition payments will be refunded in the order in which they were received. If you have any questions, please email seminars@fee.org so FEE can check on the status of your refund.
