October 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

Picture of Professor Kevin Richardson

Join us for our October general meeting, where Assistant Professor of Philosophy Kevin Richardson at NC State University will be our guest speaker. Professor Richardson’s talk is entitled Neoliberalism.

Description: According to neoliberalism, the primary goal of a government is not to support its citizens; rather, the goal is to promote market competition. In this presentation, I discuss the philosophy behind neoliberalism, as well as its practical implications. I will also briefly describe alternatives to neoliberalism. In particular, I will describe democratic socialism, a political philosophy championed (most visibly) by Senator Bernie Sanders.
