Three Enemies of Capitalism 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this second part of a two part series, Carrie-Ann Biondi will explain and challenge the essential claims of John Rawls’s welfare liberalism, and defend capitalism against the false accusations this enemy lodges against it concerning poverty, needs, and desert. Knowing his intellectual enemies accounts for part of John Galt’s success in stopping “the motor of the world” when he persuades producers to go on strike. He defeats enemies of capitalism not only by making the moral case for capitalism, but also by reclaiming terminology and undermining false premises of his enemies’ views.

(The two parts of "Enemies of Capitalism" will be informative whether one attends one or both.)
