School of Business Hosting Speaker Series About Socialism

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Freedom to Flourish speaker seriesWe want to let you know about an opportunity your student has this spring to learn more about a topic that is frequently in the news, especially as we head into election season.

There’s a disturbing trend among Millennials and Generation Z, who in large numbers believe that socialism is a viable alternative to a free market economy. Without embracing a biblical worldview and the grace of God, humanity’s sinful nature will find a way to abuse any system, but Cedarville’s School of Business Administration (SBA) holds that a free market system is the best option for promoting human flourishing and constraining the worst tendencies of human nature.

The SBA is hosting a speaker series throughout spring semester to address this important and timely topic.
