This event is free and open to the public.

Zoltan’s most recent book, Philanthropy Matters: How the Wealthy Give and What it Means to Our Economic Well-Being, takes an in-depth look at philanthropy as an underappreciated force in capitalism, measures its critical influence on the free-market system, and demonstrates how American philanthropy could serve as a model for a productive reinvestment of wealth in other countries. Zoltan will discuss a richer picture of capitalism and a more accurate backdrop for considering policies that would promote the capitalist system for the good of all.
