Why Conservatives are Anti-Business
A speech by Dr. Yaron Brook

Details: DATE: Monday January 30, 2006 TIME: 7:00 pm (Doors @ 6:30PM) LOCATION: 60 Washington Square South, NY, NY 10012 @ NYU Kimmel Center – Room Rosenthal Pavilion (10th Floor)

DESCRIPTION: Conservatives often present themselves as “pro-business” and “pro- free market”-i.e., in favor of an economic system that enables productive businessmen to flourish. Yet, in reality, Dr. Yaron Brook observes, conservatives support many anti-business policies, from antitrust prosecution to “windfall” taxes on profits-policies that hurt this nation’s most innovative and successful businessmen. Conservatives are anti-business in practice, Dr. Brook argues, because they accept an anti-business moral theory-a religious morality that upholds a life of renunciation and sacrifice, and thus advocates a government that shackles, taxes, and punishes the pursuit of material success in this world. What America’s productive businessmen need-and, in fact, what all of us need-Dr. Brook explains, is a moral philosophy that regards the creation and enjoyment of wealth as a virtue.
