About the Event
Markets are the vehicles for economic growth. And yet markets cannot be used for buying everything. Markets oppose two great ideals --the ideals of liberty and equality are at odds with one another due to the narrow conception of the economic person, or homo economicus. In our fist Bernstein Debate, Akeel Bigrami proposes a re-orientation of this tension between these two great ideals to escape the strangle hold of markets. In reply, Pierre-Andre Chiappori offers his comments on the surprising versatility of markets to resolve the conflict between different social values.
