Market advocates claim that capitalism harnesses self-interest for the common good. But in a democracy, public choice theory suggests that capitalism has a strong tendency toward cronyism. Dismissing this objection by saying “That’s not REAL capitalism!” misses the point, which is capitalism is unsustainable. Join Michael Munger as he addresses this critique.

This webinar will include a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period where attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions directly to the presenter.

Incentives matter! Because of this: Canadian students, and students studying in Canada, who complete the follow-up survey will receive a completion certificate that can be used to bolster their professional portfolio or LinkedIn profile and a $10 Amazon gift card for book purchases.
