This May, join Acton scholars in New Orleans for a deep dive into the economic system that has defined the American experiment. Conference attendees will explore the moral foundation of free markets and learn how to address the critiques and common misperceptions of our market economy.
"The “Doux Commerce” thesis states that the capitalist spirit and the drive to efficiency and profit will eventually contribute to peace, justice and morality. This is valid if competitors perceive markets as contributing to mutual benefit. At the same time, rather recent phenomena tend to change market conditions. Business ethics needs to reflect these developments in the economy as well as their consequences for businesses, societies and individuals.
