Heartland Institute Releases Emerging Issues 2005

Published August 31, 2005

CHICAGO, IL August 2005 — The Heartland Institute has released Emerging Issues 2005, a 107-page paperback book featuring the edited proceedings of Heartland’s first annual Emerging Issues Forum.

On September 23, 2004, 120 elected officials, public policy experts, and grassroots activists from across the country gathered in Chicago to look forward to the shape of public policy debates in the coming years. Twenty-eight short presentations were delivered by many of the country’s leading free-market thinkers.

All the major public policy topics of the day are covered: Taxes and budget issues, environmental regulation, school reform, health care finance, telecommunications, tort reform, and more. The authors include elected officials at the front lines of public policy change, leaders of major think tanks and foundations, and highly respected scientists, economists, and legal authorities.

Emerging Issues 2005 is a timely and authoritative guide to the public policy debates that lay ahead, yet it is short and written in plain English, making it an excellent introduction to public policy debates for an entire government affairs or public affairs staff. It can provide essential background and perspective for everyone from the boardroom to the mailroom.

Copies are just $5.95 each (plus 6.25% sales tax if ordering from Illinois and 9% tax if ordering from Chicago). Volume discounts are available. More information is available online at http://www.heartland.org/books/EIF2005.cfm.
