About this Event

UPDATE: Do not miss the premiere of "The March of History: Mises vs. Marx" to be featured at the beginning of the event! (We will start the screening promptly at 5:00 pm)

Capitalism vs. Socialism. Which way should America choose? This once-settled debate has been revived by a new post-cold war generation. Enter The March of History: Mises vs. Marx, a new economics rap music video from the co-creator of the viral Keynes vs. Hayek YouTube series. The video pits legendary philosopher Karl Marx, godfather of 20th century socialism, against free market economist Ludwig von Mises, whose writing kicked off a multi-decade debate about the feasibility of economic progress in socialist systems. This multi-media experience is a project of the American Institute for Economic Research and produced by Emergent Order.

The Debate:

The Steamboat Institute, in partnership with the Center for Enterprise and Policy Analytics (CEPA) at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business, cordially invites you to attend a very special event. Join us at the UT Student Activity Center, Auditorium 1.402 on September 18.

Yaron Brook - Chairman of the Board, Ayn Rand Institute; Author of “Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government”.

Bhaskar Sunkara - Founding editor and publisher of Jacobin; Guardian US columnist; Author of “The Socialist Manifesto: The Case for Radical Politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality”.

Moderated by Tom Rogan - Commentary Desk, Washington Examiner.
