Capitalism and Socialism: A Discussion of the Ideal Mix for the United States

-
ONLINE

National economic systems lie along a spectrum, often combining aspects of more than one system to reflect the societies in which they exist. In the United States, the mix includes characteristics of both capitalism and socialism. For more than 100 years, we have considered and debated our nation’s ideal place on this spectrum.

In the ninth event in the Trulaske Business Insider Series, six panelists will bring to bear their areas of expertise on this issue. Our discussion will include professors of history and agricultural and applied economics, including an expert in Austrian economics; radio talk show hosts; and students from both the MU College of Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources and the Missouri School of Journalism.

Capitalism and Socialism: A Discussion of the Ideal Mix for the United States will continue the Trulaske College of Business’ commitment to the respectful exchange of views that is fundamental to educating business leaders of the future.
