The Capitalist Manifesto: The Historic, Economic and Philosophic Case for Laissez-FaireAndrew Bernstein

Description: Andrew Bernstein talks about the benefits of laissez-faire capitalism and gives an overview of the advancements created within capitalist societies. He argues that, unlike fascism and socialism, capitalism is beneficial because it embraces the idea that individual rights are paramount. During his presentation, Prof. Bernstein discusses the work of Ayn Rand, John Locke, and a number of other social philsophers and defends against critics of the late 19th Century industrialists widely referred to as "robber barons." Includes Q&A.
