Two authors popular with South Korean readers are leading critics of capitalism and free markets. Last month, we examined Harvard professor Michael Sandel. This month, we turn to Chang Ha-Joon of the University of Cambridge. Aaron McKenzie and Casey Lartigue, Jr., both Visiting Scholars with the Liberty Society, will kick off the discussion with comments about Chang's analysis. Roundtable attendees will then be invited to join the discussion. More details to follow later.
