  • Venue: The Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch
  • Division: The Henry G. Manne Program in Law & Economics Studies

The Law & Economics Center at the George Mason University Scalia Law School has embarked on a three-year project—the “Capitalism and Rule of Law Project”— offering a comprehensive set of programs, across all of its divisions, to defend the economics and law of capitalism. The project will educate and awaken key legal and policy decisionmakers on the fundamental features of a market economy and the necessary rule of law prerequisites to sustain it, and the benefits of capitalism, including the time-tested utility of shareholder primacy.

The project’s first event – the CapLaw Research Roundtable on Capitalism and the Rule of Law – was held Sunday, June 20 to Thursday, June 24, 2021 in Avon, Colorado. A stellar cast of pro-free market capitalist academics participated, including George Priest (Yale), Randall Holcombe (Florida State), Jonathan Macey (Yale), Paul Rubin (Emory), Sanjai Bhagat (Colorado), Jennifer Doleac (Texas A&M), and Todd Zywicki (Scalia Law).
