Arizona Christian University (ACU) announced the addition of Dr. Barry Asmus to the faculty. Asmus will be teaching a course based on his recent book, coauthored with Dr. Wayne Grudem, “Poverty of Nations: A Sustainable Solution.”
Senior economist with the National Center for Policy Analysis, Asmus is an advocate of free market economics. He was named by USA Today as one of the five most requested speakers in the United States. He has been twice voted the Outstanding Professor of the Year and was also awarded the Freedom Foundation at Valley Forge Award for Private Enterprise Education.
Asmus has recently traveled to various countries to speak with government leaders about free-market, low tax, protected property rights and free trade policies. Among the nine books he has published, his book “Crossroads: The Great American Experiment” was nominated for an H.L. Mencken Award.
Asmus was the featured speaker at ACU’s 2012 Commencement Ceremony. His course will count as an upper-division elective for both the Political Science and Business Departments at ACU. The Business Department will also be offering the option to count the class as an economics course.
