On Saturday, May 8, an all day libertarian seminar will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (home of the winter Olympics, where the Canadians kicked American butt, at least on a per capita basis). The title of the seminar is: “Capitalism and Morality.” The speakers are me, Walter “Moderate” Block, Professor of Economics at Loyola University New Orleans; Larry Reed, President of the Foundation for Economic Education; Paul Geddes, President of the Greater Vancouver Libertarian Association; and Lila Rajiva, author of The Language of Empire and the bestselling Mobs, Messiahs, and Markets, which she co-authored with Bill Bonner. For more information, early registration, etc., go here.
I am scheduled to speak about my book, Defending the Undefendable, and a successor volume to it. But, in view of the fact that I have recently become embroiled with another libertarian over the use of the word “Capitalism,” and this word forms part of the title of this conference, I plan on discussing this controversy as well. So, if you’re planning on being in southwest Canada, or in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. in early May, c’mon and join us.5:42 pm on March 23, 2010 Email Walter E. Block
