I recently received the following announcement from David Gulbraa of ARI:

We wanted to alert you about two upcoming free live events at USC in Los

University of Southern California
Friday, February 17, 2006
Global Capitalism: The Solution to World Oppression and Poverty
Dr. Andrew Bernstein
SGM (Seeley G. Mudd) 123
6:30 PM, Doors open at 6:00 PM
This event is FREE to the public.

Capitalism is the system of individual rights. The enormous success of
capitalism in Asia in the 20th century's second half, and the beginning of its
positive impact in contemporary Latin America add to the evidence accumulated in
Europe and North America over the past 200 years: capitalism is the system of
both freedom and prosperity.

Conversely, capitalism's antipode--statism in any form--those systems that deny
the principle of individual rights, necessitates both political oppression and
economic destitution.

The purpose of this talk is to show that and why these claims are true.

This talk shows that wherever the political/economic system of capitalism is
instituted--on any continent in any era - men's freedom and prosperity are
greatly increased. This was as true of 18th century Europe as it is of 21st
century Asia. From its earliest days, capitalism raised the poor's living
standards and, within a century, eradicated in the Western world the ages-old
scourge of child labor. At the turn of the 21st century, the enormous benefits
of capitalism are beginning to be reaped in the 3rd World, especially in Asia.
As Ayn Rand stated, capitalism is the ideal social system--and this talk, based
on three years of research for the book, The Capitalist Manifesto, proves it.

Please also take note of this future event being held at USC:
