This free event was part of a nationwide debate tour featuring Yaron Brook, author of "Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand's Ideas Can End Big Government," and Bhaskar Sunkara, author of "The Socialist Manifesto: A Case for Radical Politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality." The discussion was moderated by Jillian Melchoir of the Wall Street Journal. Capitalism vs. Socialism: A Debate and Discussion gave attendees a chance to experience a rich dialogue on these two economic systems.
In addition to the University of Maryland, other stops on the tour included the University of Texas-Austin and the University of Colorado-Denver. The Ed Snider Center for Enterprise and Markets at the Robert H. Smith School of Business presented this stop on the tour in partnership with the Steamboat Institute.
