Senator Tom Coburn was on the road for Smith Soc in late October, a guest of our Chapter at Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business and visiting with our affiliated students at Harvard Business School. In addition to being an advisor to the Manhattan Institute's Project FDA, the former Congressman and Senator from Oklahoma is also a successful businessman and medical doctor. He offered talks about various policy issues, the Constitution, as well as politics and elections.
Senator Coburn spoke to a group of affiliated students at Harvard Business School on October 26th. He spoke with the HBS students both in a classroom talk and in an informal discussion session at a local restaurant.
The Smith Soc chapter at the Tuck School of Business welcomed Senator Coburn to campus on October 27th for an intimate lunch with 25 select MBA students.Over the course of the Q&A session, Senator Coburn addressed topics ranging from Article V of the Constitution to Milton Friedman’s “Four ways to spend money.” He emphasized the need for limited government, personal responsibility, and above all the accountability of elected officials. When asked about the current election cycle, he offered that the United States must begin addressing the root causes of our problems, and not reacting on impulse.
