In his sixth State of the Union address, President Obama laid out plans for his final two years in office. What does the president’s agenda mean for liberty? Or for economic growth? With Republican majorities in the House and Senate, what can policymakers do to address pressing issues while still working to reduce the size and scope of government?

Please join us as Cato policy experts discuss the current state of the union with respect to international trade, intelligence surveillance, tax policy, and financial regulation.
