Adam Smith Forum
Annual scientific and educational conference that
unite supporters of personal,
economic, and political freedoms

For the tenth time, noted representatives of social and economic sciences, publicists and bloggers will gather together to discuss the ideas of freedom, property rights, limited government, the rule of law, and civil society. Speakers will raise urgent social and economic issues and will offer an interesting perspective on contemporary and historical processes.

How did Europe become the richest part of the world? Do tolerance and political correctness kill freedom of speech? Is urbanism at all possible without government interventions and city planning? Where does libertarian paternalism of behavioral economics lead to?

You can take part in the discussion of these and other issues on November 4 at Tenth Adam Smith Forum in Moscow.
Admission is free, 18+
