Eric Daniels will be speaking at Tufts University on Monday, April 16th on “The Morality of Capitalism.” Eric is an excellent speaker, so I recommend attending if possible. Here’s the official announcement:
The Morality of Capitalism
Who: Dr. Eric Daniels, speaker for the Ayn Rand Institute
What: A talk explaining why capitalism is the only moral social system
When: Monday, April 16, at 7:30 PM
Admission is FREE.
Description: Despite the enormous success of American capitalism at producing material abundance and political freedom, critics continue their assault on the system, calling it immoral. In this lecture, Dr.
Eric Daniels makes the case that capitalism is the only moral social system. He also examines the conventional defense of capitalism, which relies on the practical, economic argument, and illustrates why only a defense of pure laissez-faire capitalism can succeed.
