On September 6, Grant MacEwan will proudly host The 2nd Annual Muttart Foundation Lecture. This year’s address by Linda McQuaig, noted journalist, author of All You Can Eat: Greed, Lust and the New Capitalism and provocative speaker on politics and economics, promises to deliver very timely food for thought. Ms McQuaig’s topic for this year’s Muttart Lecture is “Value versus Values”.

According to Ms. McQuaig, “Capitalism has always been about liberating greed, but the New Capitalism of the last two decades has pushed things dramatically further in unleashing greed from social constraints. For all our dizzying economic growth, we seem to have got things fundamentally backwards. We are allowing society to serve the interests of the economy, rather than insisting that the economy serve the interests of society.” Ms. McQuaig’s lecture will challenge us to consider what happens when emphasis is placed more on economic value than on value to the community.

This lecture is sponsored by the Muttart Foundation in cooperation with the Resource Centre for Voluntary Organizations & the Voluntary Sector Management Program. We invite everyone join us at this free public event.
