CLIVE, Iowa — Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist will join actor and comedian Ben Stein at Peoples Company’s 10th annual Land Investment Expo, on Friday, Feb. 3 at the West Des Moines Sheraton.
Norquist will bring his signature wit and wisdom as he discusses the true cost of government and what tax reform might look like in the Trump era. Norquist founded ATR in 1985 at the request of President Reagan. The group works to limit higher taxes at the federal, state and local level. Norquist has authored four books and is a regular television commentator.
The updated schedule also features Michael Doane with The Nature Conservancy. Doane is Director for Working Lands at TNC, leading the organization’s foremost experts to scale up conservation outcomes across productively managed forestry, ranching and farming landscapes. His priorities include soil health and nutrient loss reductions in North America. He replaces Mark Tercek at this year’s expo, who had a scheduling conflict.
Finally, Machinery Pete – “The most trusted name in farm equipment” – will be on hand as well. Machinery Pete has developed a national reputation thanks in part to his large social media following.
Previously announced speakers include Ben Stein and Steve Eisman.
Best known as the boring and repetitive economics teacher in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Stein’s “Bueller…?…Bueller…?” performance was voted as “one of the 50 funniest scenes in American film history.” In addition to movie and television acting, Ben has had a lucrative career as a teacher, economist, commentator, columnist and author. The Emmy-award winning game show host of Win Ben Stein’s Money will bring his signature humor and wit that will have our audience rolling.
Eisman is the outspoken hedge fund manager whose story was chronicled in Michael Lewis’ book “The Big Short,” and later when he was played by Steve Carrell as “Mark Baum” in the acclaimed movie of the same name.
