Capitalism the Creator: Mises Circle in Seattle <br />(A Curt and Allora Doolittle Seminar)

May 17

Seattle, Washington

This conference is at capacity. For other conferences near Seattle, see the Mises Circle in Vancouver, September 13, 2008

Capitalism the Creator

The Mises Circle goes to Seattle to address contemporary issues in liberty, and the role of capitalism as the main force for every form of progress in our age. We live amidst its fruits--technology, culture, philanthropy, human well being--and have yet to appreciate the source. Indeed, among the most passionate opponents of the free market are those who have benefitted most enormously from it. Here we have a profound failure of understanding at work.

Student scholarships are available.  Apply online and email a copy of your student ID (or fax to 734-448-8148).

We will be meeting from 9:00am until 2:00pm at Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant, 10455 NE 8th Street in Bellevue.  It is in the new Lincoln Square next to the Bellevue Square Mall.  Refreshment breaks and lunch are included in the registration fee.
