Feb 5th talk


An apparent paradox characterises the modern world. On one hand, we naturally seek and rejoice in prosperity. On the other hand, success in this endeavour is often marred by a materialism we find repellent and alienating. As individuals and societies, how can we reconcile these competing truths?

We invite you to an engaging talk by Dr Arthur C Brooks (President, American Enterprise Institute, Washington DC) on ‘Abundance without Attachment: The Formula for a Good Life’. Dr Sadanand Dhume (Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute, Washington DC) will join Dr Brooks for a conversation on the topic. The evening will conclude with a Q&A session moderated by Dr Dhume.

@CPPR Office from 5 pm on February 5 (Monday)
