The Matthew J. Ryan Center at Villanova University hosts R.R. Reno and Fr. Robert Sirico for a conversation discussing the merits of a free market economy. Does the free market promote political liberty, civic virtue, and human flourishing? Do free markets potentially exacerbate bad tendencies in modernity, such as consumerism or impermanence? Dr. Reno and Fr Sirico discuss whether a free market is crucial to a free and flourishing society, or if it poses certain problems to real human flourishing.
