Socialism vs. Capitalism: My Debate with John Marsh
By Bryan Caplan
Here’s the video for my Socialism vs. Capitalism debate with John Marsh. (Not to be confused with my earlier debate on the same topic with Elizabeth Bruenig). Marsh is an English professor at Penn State, but I’d say his knowledge of social science favorably compares to most tenured professors in the social sciences. (And he’s fun to talk literature with as well!) Here‘s an earlier exchange the two of us had on education and poverty.
Overall, I consider this one of the best debates I’ve been a part of, largely because Marsh is so reasonable and we actually find some common ground.
