Morality and Free Markets
Free Enterprise Lecture Series

Why is the number of Americans who value free enterprise, and who understand its virtues and benefits declining--especially among students and younger citizens? Asked in an April Rasmussen poll to choose the better system between capitalism and socialism, 13 percent of respondents over 40 years of age chose socialism. For those under 30, this percentage rose to 33 percent.

In its inaugural 2009 Free Enterprise Lecture Series, AEI hopes to foster a discussion of the merits of free enterprise through a series of provocative and engaging seminars in a relaxed setting with some of AEI's most renowned scholars.

The lecture series is open to AEI interns and research assistants, as well as interns and research assistants from peer institutions in Washington and students from local universities.

All lectures will be held in AEI's Wohlstetter Conference Center on the 12th floor at 1150 Seventeenth Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20036. Lectures will begin promptly at 5:00 p.m. Light dinner and refreshments will be served.
