The Snider Center announces the first lecture of the Justice & Markets lecture series, designed to introduce student and the public to topics in philosophy, ethics, and business.
Jason Brennan, an assistant professor of economics, ethics, and public policy at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, is the series’ first lecturer. The title of his lecture “Capitalism, Marxism, and the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse“ stems from his recent book “Why Not Capitalism?”, an examination of utopian notions of both capitalism and socialism that have been proposed by philosophers. To illustrate some important principles that contrast socialism and capitalism, Brennan amusingly draws on the world of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, an animated series on Disney Junior.
The lecture is open to the public and will be held in the Charles Carroll room of the Adele H. Stamp Student Union on Thursday February 26, 2015 at 4 p.m.
