Is Conservatism Suffering from “Free-Market Fundamentalism”?
It’s nothing new to hear liberals and conservatives debating economics.
But right now some of the most interesting arguments are the ones conservatives are having with other conservatives.
And this debate will give you a front-row seat as two leading thinkers on the right hash out how to fix the American economy.
Free markets have been fundamental to conservative thinking for decades. But has that fundamental turned into free-market fundamentalism? Is it time to rethink old pieties? And do we need an industrial policy to give us what a market economy can’t?
A growing chorus of thinkers answers yes to these questions. And at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 24, you’ll hear from one of its most important voices: Julius Krein, editor of the upstart journal American Affairs.
Debating Krein will be Scott Lincicome, the Cato Institute’s senior fellow in economic studies.
This debate will give you an inside look at the big ideas that not only are reshaping conservatism . . .
. . . but also could reshape the American economy.
Register now so you don’t miss this high-stakes debate.
This event is presented by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, the Wake Forest Department of Economics, and the Center for the Study of Capitalism as part of the Diana Davis Spencer Debate Series.
