Om foredraget:

Have you ever heard about market failure, or that greedy businessmen will poison food, pollute rivers and collapse the financial system in the search of short-sighted profits?

In this talk, PhD Research Fellow Martin Johansen will talk about the top ten arguments that are commonly put forth against capitalism, and will give the outlines to how one can answer them. The answers have existed for a long time and are taken from literature in the tradition of classical liberalism, especially from the work of Ayn Rand. Yet these counter-arguments are widely unknown.

The goal of this talk is to give an overview of how the top criticisms can be answered, and hopefully leads to people interested in learning the full answer to the arguments against capitalism.
