The Ethics of Bailouts and Government Support of Corporations: Public Benefit or Crony Capitalism?


Friday, November 30th, 2012

Much has been written about the economic impact of the corporate bailouts of the last few years. Less has been said about the ethics of using public funds for such purposes. This symposium will bring together top political scientists and philosophers with diverse ideological viewpoints to evaluate the ethical justification for such governmental support for corporations, or the lack thereof.
