Are Markets Moral?
Centre for Civil Society and the LeFrak Forum and the Symposium on Science, Reason, & Modern Democracy, a privately funded research center in the Political Science Department at Michigan State University are organizing this two day conference in New Delhi, India from 4-5 Jan 2014 to explore the complex relation between moral values and free market economics.
How does capitalism affect morality? What values does it elevate and empower? What values does it violate or undermine? Most importantly what values does it require in order to arise and flourish, and where are they to come from? These questions are not new. But neither are they stale or settled. They are kept alive by their complexity, by the continual shift of thought and of moral/economic circumstances, and by the inescapable importance that they have for our lives.
