The Roots of Capitalism vs Socialism
Ideas do indeed have consequences. "The Roots of Capitalism vs. Socialism: A Conversation" features one of America's leading scholars on the subject of political economy - the intersection of economic and political philosophies and public policy. To truly understand today's debates about capitalism and socialism, the student must consider the foundations of these two systems, and over the course of four seminars, Dr. Gordon Lloyd, Dockson Professor Emeritus at the Pepperdine School of Public Policy, explores these concepts and the thinkers who developed them.
