Hooray! The first event of Capitalism Awareness Week is tonight… and you can watch it live via streaming! Here’s the announcement:
Debate: Regulating Capitalism: Moral Necessity or Moral Treason?
Yaron Brook, President of the Ayn Rand Center for Individual Rights
Dane Smith, President of Growth and Justice
The recent economic downturn has led to much cultural debate about the proper role of capitalism. Should we allow a concentration of wealth in the hands of the few or redistribute it so everyone gets an ‘equal’ share? Is capitalism to blame for our current troubles, or is it government intervention? Join Yaron Brook and Dane Smith as they debate the proper implementation of capitalism in society, including the moral implications and the role of government.
Tuesday, September 27th
5:30 PM Pacific, 6:30 PM Mountain 7:30 PM Central, 8:30 PM Eastern
University of Minnesota, Twin-Cities and live streamed online worldwide

Also, I’m pleased to announce that our prior solicitations have raised nearly $4000 for The Undercurrent. We’d raised $1960 as of Sunday, and Paul and I will match up to $2000. I can’t properly express my delight at the generosity of everyone who has contributed! You are helping to expose college students to Objectivist ideas, and that’s so very important!
If you’ve not yet contributed to these awesome efforts by The Undercurrent but you’d like to do so… it’s not too late! Paul and I won’t match funds over the $2000 total threshold, but your contribution will be well-spent!
