French Economics Professor to Present at Truman


“Toward a More Participatory Society”
Jörg Guido Hülsmann, professor of economics, University of Angers, France
7 p.m.
Feb. 21
Baldwin Hall Little Theatre

Presentation abstract: Plato, St. Thomas Aquinas, Adam Smith, David Ricardo, Emile Durkheim, Ludwig von Miss and countless other great thinkers have underscored that human beings associate because of material advantages that they derive from cooperation. To understand the mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion, it is therefore necessary to study the cause of association and dissociation. We will focus on the impact of savings and capital accumulation on the one hand and government interventions on the other hand.
