In this session Dr. Richard Salsman will discuss his new book and field comments. In pride, Dr. Salsman admittedly sees his book as one of the best on Capitalism in recent decades. An anthology of the 66 best essays he has published in recent years, it examines the rise and fall of capitalism as an ideal; a new preface sets the context and relates the essays to current and future trends. In this session, Dr. Salsman will discuss how, in today’s capitalism debate, "Where Have All the Capitalists Gone?" is relevant, pertinent, and distinctive. A major theme: a “capitalist” may be financial (common), ideological (rare), or both (very rare). Another major theme: capitalism isn’t primarily an economic system but a social system necessitating the ethic of rational egoism, which is disdained by socialists and conservatives alike.
For additional information and in preparation for the event, feel free to review the ABSTRACT which includes links to recommended reading.
Join us for Morals & Markets on October 28th at 5pm PT / 8pm ET to discuss the new book “Where Have All the Capitalists Gone?.” After Dr. Salsman’s 20-30 minute topic introduction there will be another 60-minutes available for discussion, questions, and debate!
