Civita breakfast Wednesday May 8th
In the modern era, capitalism has created unprecedented wealth, raising the living standards of billions, both in the West and the rest of the world. Yet, many people question the future of the economic system. Growth is slow, and the benefits are unevenly distributed. Has capitalism failed, or is today’s economic system still our best hope for creating opportunities for all?
