H9564: The Devil's Casino: A Debate on the Morality of Finance in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
In this class, me and some other students from NYU will be having a debate about the morality of finance. We'll be guided by you (you can submit questions ahead of time, and ask them as we talk). Topics we want to touch on are free enterprise (finance is legitimate economic activity, governed by contract and subject to law, so how could it be bad?), information asymmetry (is it moral to sell products you know to be overly risky?), the role of government (regulatory capture and lobbying are highly legal, yet are they also highly immoral?), and other related philosophical questions.
