Today: Debate between R. R. Reno and Rev. Sirico on free markets

Conservative Christians are becoming increasingly enticed by the idea of socialism. As many people with good intentions are beginning to consider socialism as a beneficial alternative to capitalism, supporters of the free market would beg to differ.

Recently the editor of “First Things”, Rusty Reno, voiced his concerns with capitalism in his essay on Michael Novak’s The Spirit of Democratic Capitalism. Reno criticizes Novak’s view of capitalism and proposes a reexamination of socialism.

President and co-founder of the Acton Institute, Rev. Robert Sirico, will be debating Reno tonight concerning his stance on free markets, capitalism, and more.

You can register for the event here, which will take place at Villanova University in Villanova, PA at 4:30.
