A Search for Truth

On the
Science of Political Economy & Perspectives on the Pandemic

Because of the unexpectedly prolonged lockdown, we are compelled to conduct our annual conference over Zoom & in installments for the convenience of our resource speakers, members and supporters. The Association is pleased to have two distinguished speakers on topics of great relevance today, Dr. Iain Benson of the Faculty of Law of the University of Notre Dame and Tibor Molnar of the Department of Philosophy and Centre for Continuing Education of the University of Sydney.

To enable the best participation possible, we urge the following guidelines in the hope to ensure mutual respect in equal rights.

  • Speaker is given 40-45 minutes of an uninterrupted presentation & all other participants will be muted.
  • There will be three to five minutes section for CLARIFICATORY questions BEFORE the session. Please keep questions brief & will be reminded if the preamble exceeds 40 seconds.
  • In the succeeding open forum section, participants are given two minutes (maximum) to give their comments, insights & questions.
  • If you have something really important to contribute at that very moment, use the chat box or pass a private message to the speaker, do not interrupt.
  • Those who have spoken less, if at all, will have priority over those who have.

History of Economic Development & Thought III:
Saturday 28th August 2:00 - 5:00 pm

From the overthrow of French monarchy and the Spinning Jenny  to to the eve of WWI and the first wireless transmission by Marconi, the economic scales began to shift in favour of Europe, which struggled with the conflict between the colonial acquisition and preservation of newfound wealth and power through conquest and victory among rivals and the virtue of noblesse oblige to the weak, marginalized and oppressed who, in turn, grew in the awareness of their own humanity, dignity and fundamental equality. Thus will this session discuss the drastic turn of neoclassical economics to the reduction of natural resources to capital in general, wages as an expense and advances made by capital and a conflict between classes as well as between colonies and empires. It was at this exciting time that Henry George's ideas took shape and spread like wildfire and influenced economic reforms around the world.
