HBS Social Enterprise Initiative’s Business & Society Series presents: “The Pursuit” Screening and Conversation with Robert Doar & Ian Rowe
Last November, a group of NYC-based HBS alumni gathered to discuss how we as leaders can re-energize and advance the pursuit of happiness, prosperity, and equity for all. On April 9, we have the opportunity to advance this conversation with an exclusive screening of The Pursuit, featuring economist and outgoing president of the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Arthur Brooks, as he crosses three continents in search of the secrets to a happier, more prosperous world, starting at the margins. Afterwards, Robert Doar and Ian Rowe (MBA 1993) will host a provocative conversation about the merits of capitalism vs. socialism, as the debate between the economic systems intensifies across this country and the world.
