The Capitalist Manifesto
Andrew Bernstein talked about his book The Capitalist Manifesto: The Historic, Economic and Philosophic Case for Laissez-Faire, published by University Press of America. He talked about the benefits of laissez-faire capitalism and gave an overview of the advancements created within capitalist societies. He argued that, unlike fascism and socialism, capitalism is beneficial because it embraces the idea that individual rights are paramount. During his presentation, Prof. Bernstein discussed the work of Ayn Rand, John Locke, and a number of other social philosophers. He also defended against critics of the late 19th Century industrialists widely referred to as “robber barons.” Following his remarks, he responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. close
