Media Appearances

As part of a thriving academic institution, the BB&T Center for the Study of Capitalism is a vital part of the research and teaching mission of Wake Forest, but we also embrace the opportunity to help the public understand the ways that the institutions of our economy shape the news and events of the day. Members of BB&T Center team seek to participate actively in public debate for the same reasons they came to teaching in the first place: they are fascinated by the topics of capitalism and professional identity and believe that greater understanding of society’s institutions and the purpose of honorable business will result in greater prosperity and human flourishing.

For more information about members of the BB&T Center team as resources for upcoming media projects, please contact the Center or, if you’re on a tight deadline, contact the Business School’s communications team.
