Join Atlas Society Senior Scholar Richard Salsman, Ph.D., Tuesday, August 22 @ 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET for our quarterly Morals & Markets webinar to discuss central banking and the dangers it poses to individual liberty.
“Central banking is not—as most economists claim—a benign institution that ensures our economic and financial well-being. It is central planning applied to money and banking and as such it proliferates statist regimes, to the detriment of liberty and prosperity.”

Dr. Salsman is one of the leading proponents of the moral defense of Capitalism left in our country and is a dedicated scholar of Rand and Objectivism. He began hosting Morals & Markets for alumni of his classes at Duke who wanted to continue to have engaging conversations on contemporary topics that explore the intersection between ethics, politics, economics, and markets. Sessions begin with remarks by Dr. Salsman, followed by Q&A, discussion, and debate.
