Wally’s Bookshelf: Can Capitalism Survive? with Dr. Nicholas Snow

July 26, 2022
7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. (EDT)

Wally's Bookshelf is a casual book discussion led by a Wabash faculty or staff member via Zoom and provides participants the opportunity to connect with fellow Little Giants. Participants are required to procure and read the book, but the virtual discussion is free.

Join Dr. Nicholas Snow for a discussion on the book Can Capitalism Survive? by late distinguished Professor of Economics, Benjamin A. Rogge.  The nineteen essays in this volume explore the philosophy of freedom, the nature of economics, the business system, labor markets, money and inflation, the problems of cities, education, and what must be done to ensure the survival of free institutions and capitalism.  Rogge was a champion of libertarian principles and free market economics.  To honor him, the Rogge Committee arranges a lecture at Wabash each year. The Rogge Memorial Lecture was started shortly after his death in 1980.
