Ford Hall Forum presents: Hedrick Smith, "Money & Power: A Debate"
Start Date: 10/10/2013Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Date: 10/10/2013End Time: 8:00 PM

Event Description:

Associate Professor Rachael Cobb (Chair, SU CAS Government Dept.) moderates a critical debate between former New York Times journalist Hedrick Smith and Ayn Rand Institute President Yaron Brook on money and power. Smith argues that a pro-business power shift in Washington and a change in the American business ethos away from stakeholder capitalism to shareholder capitalism has created a harmful economic divide in America. Brook counters that today’s mess is a product, not of capitalism, but of empowering the government to restrict free enterprise and dole out favors to preferred groups. Smith offers ideas for reviving middle class power and prosperity, while Brook tells us how laissez-faire capitalism offers individuals on all levels of ability the greatest promise of prosperity in this incredible debate on wealth and power in the 21st century.
