John Allison: How Business Makes the World a Better Place to Live

April 14, 2016 | 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM | Broyhill Auditorium, 1834 Wake Forest Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27106

As part of our 2016 Academic Conference, Mr. John Allison will deliver the keynote address on Thursday night, April 14, 2016.
Mr. Allison will discuss why having a sense of purpose and an uncompromising clarity of ethical values, based on rationality, is the foundation for a successful business. He will argue that when businesses fulfill their role, they are a primary driver of societal well being in the broadest context of human flourishing.

He will also argue that free markets are the primary creator of ethical and productive business behavior and that governmental regulation, beyond the fundamental protection of individual rights, is practically always counter productive. Allison strongly believes that market discipline is the fundamental source of so called, ‘Corporate Social Responsibility.’

The event is free and open to the public.
