Join Atlas Society Senior Scholar Richard Salsman, Ph.D., Tuesday, February 27 @ 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET for our quarterly Morals & Markets webinar to discuss arguments for and against capitalism as proposed by its strongest supporters and opponents. 

“Social science faculty at top-tier American universities typically lean leftward ideologically and thus don’t present a case for capitalism. For the past five years at Duke University I’ve conducted a popular seminar for first-year students which assesses both the pros and cons of capitalism. In this session, I recount the seminar’s origins, share the syllabus, review the readings, and convey some student reactions. Theseminar’s introduction reads as follows: 'Capitalism is a formidable and durable social system worthy of scientific, objective study. Only three centuries old, it has both proponents and opponents, each wielding strong and weak arguments. In this seminar, we investigate, analyze, and debate the nature of capitalism and assess the validity (or not) of various pro-con claims.'”
