Former presidential candidate Ron Paul will speak at Iowa State on Nov. 13

AMES, Iowa -- Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul will talk about his latest book, "End the Fed," at Iowa State University on Friday, Nov. 13. His presentation, "Free Market, Sound Money and Non-Intervention," will be at 7 p.m. in Benton Auditorium, Scheman Building. It is free and open to the public.

Paul, who has served 11 terms in the U.S. Congress, was a presidential candidate in the 2008 election. He is an advocate for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets and sound monetary policies based on commodity-backed currency. Paul founded the advocacy group Campaign for Liberty as an extension of his presidential campaign and the grass roots support it generated.

Paul's latest book, "End the Fed," challenges the role of the Federal Reserve in American economic policy. He also is the author of "The Revolution: A Manifesto," "Pillars of Prosperity" and "A Foreign Policy of Freedom: Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship."

Paul is a graduate of Gettysburg College and the Duke University School of Medicine. He served as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force during the 1960s. In 1968, he began his medical practice in Texas.

Paul's talk is cosponsored by the Iowa State Young Americans for Liberty, Young Americans for Liberty, and the Committee on Lectures, which is funded by the Government of the Student Body.
