Capitalism and Society Lecture Scheduled for Nov. 6

A lecture, What Is Economic Freedom Anyway and Why Should I Care, will be held on Nov. 6 starting at 4:15 p.m. in Barry Hall Room 140 of North Dakota State University’s downtown campus.

The featured speaker will be Ryan Compton, associate professor of economics at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg and an adjunct associate professor at the University of Victoria's School of Public Administration in Victoria, British Columbia.

Compton has multiple published works and is doing research that explores the various effects of economic freedom on economic growth, social capital, income inequality and the black-white income gap. In his lecture, he will discuss the concept of economic freedom and its measurement, and present an overview of research, including his own studies, on the consequences of economic freedom.

Compton’s lecture is part of the Capitalism and Society series that seeks to bring in scholars to address issues dealing with the moral and ethical foundations of capitalism and free markets as an economic system. The series is sponsored by the NDSU Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department and College of Business. The series is organized by Jeremy Jackson, assistant professor in the Agribusiness and Applied Economics Department.

The lecture is free and open to the public. The lecture will be relevant for a general audience, with no detailed knowledge of economics required.
