"Crony Capitalism and the American Constitution" with Dr. Michael Munger

Crony Capitalism or governmental intervention into the economy (e.g., subsidies, tariffs, anti-trust laws, etc.) benefits large corporations at the expense of small businesses and individual citizens. But is crony capitalism inevitable in democracies? And can the U.S. Constitution safeguard against crony capitalism?

Join us for a Lyceum Lecture on Tuesday, December 1 from 5:30 - 6:15 PM EST. We will have a conversation with Dr. Michael Munger about "Crony Capitalism and the American Constitution."

The Lyceum Lectures are hosted by the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism (CISC). They have been made possible with generous support from the Jack Miller Center (JMC).
