Culture of Competition: Is big business a big problem for free enterprise?

Culture of Competition: Is big business a big problem for free enterprise?



  • Thursday, July 11, 2013, 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET

    Lunch will be served.

    AEI, Twelfth Floor
    1150 Seventeenth Street, NW
    Washington, DC 20036

    From bailouts for banks and carmakers to subsidies for solar panels and
    sugar growers -- not to mention mandates for health insurance and
    ethanol -- big business hasn’t exactly asked Washington to leave it
    alone in recent years.
    But while industry lobbies often seek special
    favors, they also bring their clout to the pro-growth fight against
    overregulation and tax hikes and for competition and free enterprise.


    So is big business a true ally of free enterprise? Should it be? Or does
    its penchant for cronyism and government "investment" in politically
    favored industries make it just another special interest?


    Our panelists from the left, the right, and K Street will answer these
    questions and discuss the future of big business, economic freedom, and
    the state.
