Capitalism, Socialism and War

February 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - July 3, 2023 @ 8:00 pm CET

What are the underlying causes of War? Is capitalism the cure or the cause? Yaron Brook delves into the causes of war and capitalism’s role.

Under capitalism, socialists claim that war is the continuation of corporate competition by other means. There is a direct connection between capitalism, crisis and war. Liberals are convinced that the opposite is the case: crises and wars arise precisely when the state becomes too powerful and interferes too much in economic life. Accordingly, it is the protectionist industrial policy that increases the likelihood of war: “If goods don’t cross borders, then soldiers will.” (Frédéric Bastiat) What is correct now? Is interventionism or a free economic system to blame for wars? What should be done to reduce the risk of wars?

This event is held in cooperation with the Students for Freedom Zurich.
