Evening at FEE: Ayn Rand's Moral Defense of Capitalism

Start Saturday, November 05, 2011 6:15 PM

End Saturday, November 05, 2011 9:30 PM

We invite you to join us on Saturday, November 5 for an Evening at FEE. Our guest will be Yaron Brook, President and Executive Director of The Ayn Rand Institute.

Rejecting previous attempts to defend the self-interested nature of markets–including Adam Smith’s famous “invisible hand” theory–Ayn Rand defined a whole new way of thinking about self-interest, and in doing so, provided an indispensable moral foundation for free markets.

The Evening at FEE event will begin with a small reception at 6:15 p.m., the lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Due to the enormous interest this event is now SOLD OUT. FEE has reached its seating capacity. If you have RSVP’d and cannot come to the event, please contact Katie O’Connell.

Check out our YouTube Channel for this and other free-market lectures.

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
