On October 31, 2017, the Center on Capitalism and Society held its 15th annual conference, "The Age of the Individual: 500 Years Ago Today." Leading scholars in economics, philosophy and sociology explored themes of individualism, emancipation and self-actualization that trace their roots to the day Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door at Wittenberg on October 31, 1517. The Center also hosts academic seminars on topics related to its mission. Click here to read more about past and upcoming events.
The Center for Capitalism and Society brings together leading scholars in economics, business, finance and law to study capitalist institutions, their effectiveness and their weaknesses, in order to get some answers to such basic questions about capitalism—its working, its dynamism and the instability it may cause, its inclusiveness or lack thereof and its role in a democracy.
