Harvard Professor Benjamin M. Friedman discussing his new book "Religion and the rise of Capitalism"




Join all the Texas Harvard Clubs on Thursday March 11th, from 7:00 to 8:30pm for a presentation and conversation with Harvard Professor Benjamin M. Friedman. Professor Friedman is one of the nation’s preeminent experts on economic policy, and he has written extensively on the broader relationship of economics to other lines of thinking. He will discuss his new book, “Religion and the Rise of Capitalism,” released on January 26, 2021.


This new book is a major reassessment of the foundations of modern economic thinking, examining the profound influence of an until-now unrecognized force – religion. Professor Friedman will share his research into how religious thinking has shaped economic thinking ever since the beginnings of modern Western economics. In addition, in light of the fact that we have just concluded a historic national election, he will focus on how early religious influences continue to shape our current-day debate over economic policy in the United States.
