Event Description:

"Why Morality-Free Economic Theory Does Not Work:

A Natural Law Perspective in the Wake of the Recent Financial Crisis"

The recent worldwide financial crisis has revealed a serious flaw in current thinking about markets and morals.  Contemporary legal theorists and political economists commonly assume that markets can (and even should) provide morally neutral zones for the exchange of goods among free persons, constrained by nothing other than the laws of contract and the imperatives of self-interest.  Professor Bruni's lecture will challenge this dominant assumption, and will offer an alternative, 'natural law' perspective on the interrelatedness of markets, morals, and human sociality


Professor Luigino Bruni, Associate Professor at the University of Milan-Bicocca, Economics Department and at the Sophia University of Loppiano in Florence.

Professor Michael Baur, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Fordham’s Rose Hill Campus and Adjunct Professor at Fordham Law School where he teaches Natural Law

Professor Russell G. Pearce, Professor of Law, Edward & Marilyn Bellet Chair in Legal Ethics, Morality, and Religion at Fordham Law School.

RSVP by October 12, or at the door.
