Are capitalist societies just or are they full of inequality and exploitation? Do they liberate or oppress? Do they encourage virtue or vice, excellence or mediocrity, happiness or misery? Are there preferable ways to organize society and the economy? Can capitalist societies be improved and reformed? In this salon, we will interrogate and discuss our beliefs and attitudes towards capitalism. Join us for what promises to be a rich exchange of ideas.
This salon discussion is derived from a course of the same name taught by Anton Howes, RSA’s Historian in Residence. For the full syllabus see here.
