Capitalism, Individualism and the Welfare State

Lars Seier Christensen and Ben Bayer join Yaron Brook at Ayn Rand Con Europe to discuss the ways in which tribalism leads to the “mixed economy” welfare state—and how that political-economic system reinforces the anti-individual mindset. The result is a vicious circle of increasingly collectivist policies and an increasingly collectivist electorate that both supports and is victimized by the system.

This panel was recorded live as part of the Ayn Rand Conference on Individualism in an Age of Tribalism in Prague, Czech Republic on February 16, 2019 by the Ayn Rand Institute.
