Attending on Friday: The Morality and Future of Capitalism

I am a little busy and will only make the first two sessions - it would have been nice of the organizers to accommodate my needs and put the three guys I want to see on the same panel, but so it goes:

“The Morality and Future of Capitalism”
Friday, April 5th

10:00 -Noon: “Is Inequality Bad for America?”
Robert Lerman (American University & Urban Institute)
Loren Lomasky (Univerity of Virginia)
Jerry Muller (Catholic University).

1:00-2:45: “What Policymakers Should Know about Great Political Economists”
Richard Boyd (Georgetown) on Adam Smith
Bradley Bateman (Denison) on John Maynard Keynes
Peter Boettke (George Mason) on Friedrich Hayek

Robert Lerman, Brad Bateman, and Pete Boettke are of particular interest for me.


  1. Hеllo everyonе, it's my first go to see at this web page, and post is actually fruitful in support of me, keep up posting these types of content.

  2. Peter Boettke (George Mason) on Friedrich Hayek

    AS Boettke is last, you can make a wise use of your time and leave early.

  3. Dan,

    As the mere fact that you would waste your time to go see Peter Boettke shows you lack the ability to think well and for yourself, I decided to take a moment and write a question for you, so that you can pose such and at least take public credit for showing the man to be, at best, a farce.

    On his blog Boettke writes about how federalism causes states in the U.S. to be fiscally irresponsible.

    But if this mechanism is attenuated through transfers from the federal state to lower jurisdictions, the incentives to maintain one’s fiscal house in order disappear. Ultimately the entire system collapses as a result of collectivized risks. This has been slowly happening in the United States throughout the 20th century, but it is taking place at an even bigger level in the EU because the EU is a hybrid federal system. This is why many want to centralize political and policy powers in the EU so as to make the place more like the US

    Now this is mendacity and prevarication on a new and higher level. The states who get federal dollars are almost Boettke's beloved free states in the South, etc. You know that CA, Il, MN, etc., all send the US more tax dollars they are returned.

    So, here is a plain case of just super mendacity. If there were anything to Boettke's "free states claim," well such just disappeared into a fog of lies.

    If you want to make a more sophisticated attack, as Boettke whether the depositors in Cyprus now want: (1) money, not backed by any government or (2) more and better deposit insurance.

    Boettke is so dull he could never understand that life is a confidence game in which collectivized risk is every growing because of the ever growing challenges of economic life.

  6. What is Bradley Bateman going to discuss about J.M. Keynes?

    If he is going to inform any policy-makers in the audience about J.M. Keynes's philosophical thought...perhaps the audience should take a look at these links, then.
