Would Anarcho-Capitalism Be a Disaster? A Soho Forum Debate

Brook has co-authored many books focused on capitalism and the benefits of free markets, including In Pursuit of Wealth: The Moral Case for Finance, Equal Is Unfair: America’s Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality, and Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government. He was a columnist at Forbes, and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Investor’s Business Daily, and more.

Caplan, a professor of economics at George Mason University, is taking the negative. He’s The New York Times bestselling author of The Myth of the Rational Voter, Selfish Reasons to Have More KidsThe Case Against Education, and more. He writes for the Substack Bet On It, and has been published in The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Reason, and more.
