Is Capitalism Moral? A Debate
The Commonwealth Club of California: San Francisco
595 Market Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105
David Callahan, co-founder of Demos, author, professor of politics, and editor of PolicyShop.net will be debating Yaron Brook on the proper size and scope of government at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco on October 22. Doors open at 5:30pm, debate begins at 6:00pm.
This lively debate will focus on the role of government, one of the most contested issues in American politics and a focus of the 2012 election. Two staunch advocates debate government, values and the economy – the fundamental social, economic and moral ideas that underlie politics in the U.S. today. Bring your questions. Callahan will defend the position that government should have a more prominent role in society and work to craft policies that solve societal problems and promote a greater degree of equity. The event will be moderated by Dr. Ruth Shapiro, The Commonwealth Club's Social Entrepreneur in Residence.
