“The Morality of Capitalism”

May 6, 2013: A talk in Toronto by ARI executive director Dr. Yaron Brook

What:  A talk about the nature of capitalism and its importance in our lives

Where: University of Toronto

Medical Sciences Building

1 King’s College Circle

Room 3153

When:  Monday, May 6, 7:30 p.m.

Doors open at 7:15 p.m.

Admission:  Free. A donation at the door ($10 suggested) will be gratefully accepted, however.

Description:  Capitalism has an undisputed record of wealth generation, yet it has always functioned under a cloud of moral suspicion. In a culture that venerates Mother Teresa as a paragon of virtue, businessmen sit in stoic silence while their pursuit of profits is denounced as selfish greed. In this talk, Dr. Yaron Brook—executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute and co-author of Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government—will demonstrate how Ayn Rand’s revolutionary ethics of rational self-interest supply the moral foundation that previous proponents of capitalism lacked. Dr. Brook will explain why individual rights are crucial for capitalism’s survival—why productivity and profit, the “selfish greed” that conservatives abhor, are not vices but cardinal virtues.

Bio:  Yaron Brook (MBA, University of Texas at Austin; PhD, Finance, University of Texas at Austin) is the executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is a columnist at Forbes.com, and his articles have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Investor’s Business Daily, and many other publications. He is a frequent guest on national radio and television programs and is co-author with ARI fellow Don Watkins of the national best-seller Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government.

About Tedd

Hello all, I grew up in British Columbia, Canada with wide open fields as my back yard. The mountains were mine for me to roam. I played, ran, swam and wandered in the beautiful mountains and lakes of central Okanagan. As I grew older, I traveled across Canada to New York, then Boston. I moved back to Canada. I settled back in B.C. , only to move to Toronto where I now currently live. Although I spent my youth in natural surroundings, I have spent most of my adult life in cities, which I love. As much as I enjoy nature, I love what man has done to the earth! Man has made a living! Man has made life possible for billions who would never be alive except for skills, ingenious tools, and technology. Carving nature to suit our purposes is breath taking, not just practical! We should be glad to be alive today! For us, using our minds to live is natural.

    This talk was an amazing success, with Yaron Brook explaining in full detail why we need a moral revolution, a free market revolution!

    In addition to the talk, generated were four media interviews and interest or potential for future interviews.
