Weekend Discussion Colloquium

The Center for Public Choice and Market Process, in conjunction with the Institute for Humane Studies, hosts weekend discussion colloquiums for students interested in classical works on free society. These seminars are typically a few days long and involve in-depth discussions in a Socratic style from readings done ahead of time. We collaborate with local universities and host 12-15 students from College of Charleston and other universities along with faculty.

What Can Adam Smith Teach Us About OUR World?

Saturday, February 29th, 2020

9:00am - 5:00pm

Beatty Center - Room 301

Amy Willis, Senior Fellow and Director of Econlib and AdamSmithWorks at Liberty Fund, will be the discussion leader in order to explore excerpts from Adam Smith's two main works, "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" and the "Wealth of Nations" to begin a journey that could last lifetimes. Explore our natural sociality and concern for others, as well as how these influence our market-based participation.
