Randolph President Bradley W. Bateman will offer his expertise in economics to a forum at Arizona State University on March 14. The program is titled “Hayek and Keynes on Economic Liberty” and will be a discussion about famed economists F.A. Hayek and John Maynard Keynes and their thoughts about economic liberty.
Bateman will join Bruce Caldwell, an economics professor at Duke University, and Scott Scheall, a social sciences professor at Arizona State University, for the program.
In addition to his service as Randolph’s president since 2013, Bateman is the author of Keynes’ Uncertain Revolution and co-author of Capitalist Revolutionary: John Maynard Keynes. He is also co-editor (with Roger Backhouse) of the Cambridge Companion to Keynes. His work on the religious influences on American economics has appeared in many journals, including the Journal of Economic Perspectives, History of Political Economy, and the Journal of the History of Economic Thought. He is co-editor (with Spencer Banzhof) of Keeping Faith; Losing Faith: Religious Belief and Political Economy.
This event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University and the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at ASU.
