Posted by: on Jun 19, 2017 | No Comments

On July 29, 2017, some of the finest minds would be getting together in Vancouver to discuss the philosophy of freedom and liberty. This annual event brings together thinktanks and leaders from across the globe to meet and share their ideas. Capitalism & Morality has been hosted every year since 2010, with “Reason, Argumentation & Liberty” being at the forefront of all discussions. The event has seen the likes of Larry Reed (President of the Foundation for Economic Education, USA) and Dr. Warren Farrell (renowned author of several books including Myth of Male Power) speak on diverse aspects of liberty that impacts organizations and society.

Capitalism & Morality is the brainchild of Jayant Bhandari, a leading analyst and institutional investor consultant, and has become a platform for thinkers to share their ideas, opinions, suggestions and predictions on liberty and freedom.
