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.
