The Center for the Study of Capitalism was founded in 2009 with the support of Universidad Francisco Marroquín in Guatemala. As part of the University, the Center has a commitment to comply with their mission to,
teach and disseminate the ethical, legal and economic principles of a society of free and responsible persons.
In order to achieve this institutional mission, the Center focuses in promoting a rational discussion and reflection in order to encourage the adoption of a philosophy of life that leads a person to champion reason, individual rights, capitalism and entrepreneurial activity.
Until now, we have leaded socratic dialogues in 12 high schools in which more than 500 students have read and discussed the works of Ayn Rand, Ludwig von Mises, Manuel Ayau, Henry Hazlitt and other important academics.
For the period 2010-2011 we hope to continue working in our dialogue programs and expand the amount of books discussed and to inspire more young people to adopt a Philosophy of Life that champions reason. Our goal is to read and discuss more than 1200 books during the 2010-2011 period.
We need your support!
