Event description

Description

The Western Civ Dialogue Series presents:

What's good and bad about capitalism as we actually find it operating in the real world? Markets have liberated many from poverty, yet at the same time, many markets are rigged in unfair and unproductive ways. What, if anything, should we - and can we - do about it?

This event brings leading libertarian philosopher Jason Brennan and leading egalitarian philosopher Larry Temkin together to explore both the beauty and warts of capitalism and the free enterprise system as it exists in our country today. This event promises to be both illuminating and provocative, but devoid of the rancor that permeates so much of contemporary discourse on the pressing issues of our time.

Featuring:
Jason Brennan,
Robert J. and Elizabeth Flanagan Family Professor of Strategy, Economics, Ethics, and Public Policy at the McDonough School of Business and Professor of Philosophy at Georgetown University

Larry Temkin, Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University

Co-Sponsored by:
Center for Western Civilization, Thought & Policy (CWCTP)
