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.
