The Center on 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.
