  • The End of Socialism

    Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 4:00PM
    ZSR Library Auditorium 404

    Dr. Jim Otteson’s presentation will be based on his recently released book The End of Socialism, which explores socialism as a system of political economy – that is, from the perspectives of both moral philosophy and economic theory. His book examines the exact nature of the practical difficulties socialism faces, which turn out to be greater than one might initially suppose, and then asks whether the moral ideals it champions – equality, fairness, and community – are important enough to warrant attempts to overcome these difficulties nonetheless, especially in light of the alleged moral failings of capitalism. The result is an examination of the “end of socialism,” both in the sense of the moral goals it proposes and in the results of its unfolding logic. Dr. Otteson joined the Wake Forest University School of Business in the Fall of 2013 as Executive Director of the BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism and Teaching Professor of Political Economy.
