Bringing Yaron Brook to Toronto! May 6th, 2013. http://Yaronto.com/

I hope that those of you living in Toronto can make it.

Here's the press release:

“The Morality of Capitalism”

May 6, 2013: A talk in Toronto by ARI executive director Dr. Yaron Brook

What: A talk about the nature of capitalism and its importance in our lives

Where: University of Toronto

Medical Sciences Building

1 King’s College Circle

Room 3153

When: Monday, May 6, 7:30 p.m.

Doors open at 7:15 p.m.

Admission: Free. A donation at the door ($10 suggested) will be gratefully accepted, however.

Description: Capitalism has an undisputed record of wealth generation, yet it has always functioned under a cloud of moral suspicion. In a culture that venerates Mother Teresa as a paragon of virtue, businessmen sit in stoic silence while their pursuit of profits is denounced as selfish greed. In this talk, Dr. Yaron Brook—executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute and co-author ofFree Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government—will demonstrate how Ayn Rand’s revolutionary ethics of rational self-interest supply the moral foundation that previous proponents of capitalism lacked. Dr. Brook will explain why individual rights are crucial for capitalism’s survival—why productivity and profit, the “selfish greed” that conservatives abhor, are not vices but cardinal virtues.

Bio: Yaron Brook (MBA, University of Texas at Austin; PhD, Finance, University of Texas at Austin) is the executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is a columnist at Forbes.com, and his articles have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Investor’s Business Daily, and many other publications. He is a frequent guest on national radio and television programs and is co-author with ARI fellow Don Watkins of the national best-seller Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government.
