Is selfishness a virtue? Ayn Rand famously thought so and one of her most-influential contemporary champions, Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute, will debate the former chief economist of the New York Stock Exchange, Gene Epstein, at the next Reason-sponsored Soho Forum debate at the East Village's Subculture Theater.
If that main event isn't enough, best-selling author and Fox News legal expert Judge Andrew Napolitano will moderate the Oxford-style debate. This is the libertarian event of the month and tickets are selling fast at $18 per seat and just $10 for students. Admission includes a great light buffet and a cash bar will be open before, during, and after.
The event will also be livestreamed at Reason.com and at Reason's Facebook page. But if you live in or around the Big Apple, you'll want a front-row seat to what promises to be an intellectual version of the Thrilla in Manila.
Note: You must buy tickets ahead of time. Go here now.
