  • 8 to 8:25am: Registration and coffee
  • 8:25 to 8:30am: Introduction by Jayant Bhandari
  • 8:30 to 9:30am: “Ethics of capitalism-I” by Stefan Molyneux
    Mr Molyneux runs one of the most influential and successful online, liberty-oriented philosophical radio, Freedomain. An unrelenting fighter for the supremacy of the human spirit, Mr Molyneux unabashedly attacks the fallacious assumptions that often shape our worldviews, opinions, and paradigms.
  • 9:30 to 10am: Coffee
  • 10 to 11am: “The need for abundance mentality” by Frank Holmes
    Mr Holmes, a world-renowned money manager in the natural resource sector, asks if the current generation of Westerners have narrowed its vision by focusing on other people’s pockets? Does a sense of entitlement lead us to a depressing life of scarcity? Is a sense of abundance merely a spiritual concept or is it what made the West so successful and prosperous in the past? Mr Holmes suggests living with gratitude to put our lives on a positive track.
  • 11 to 12pm: “Taming the violence of faith” by Nancy Rhyme Snelson
    Wife of the late Jay Stuart Snelson, Mrs. Snelson will talk about how our paradigms and understanding of causality have a crucial affect on the direction of our lives and the future of society.
  • 12 to 1pm: Lunch
  • 1 to 2pm: “Ethics of capitalism-II” by Stefan Molyneux
  • 2 to 3pm: “Paradigms of a winner” by Rick Rule
    Mr Rule, one of the most successful investors anywhere, talks about how our erroneous and irrational beliefs and emotions lead us down a self-destructive path. While Mr Rule points the blame for a lot of social ills on the State, he insists that our biggest personal enemy is between our two ears. Mr Rule shows how his value-system is the only way to create an abundance mentality, with its inevitable consequences on the wealth and well-being of the individual.
  • 3 to 3:30pm: Coffee
  • 3:30 to 4:30pm: “Socialism & psychological aberration” by Doug Casey
    Are socialists misinformed but well-meaning folks? Probably not, says, Mr Casey. Socialistic beliefs have at their foundations confused thinking, lack of self-respect and sheer crookedness. It is not the tens of trillion dollars of debt that necessarily is destroying the West, but the social mindset whose symptom is that debt. Mr Casey is one of the most sought after speakers. He has written two New York Times bestsellers, including “Crisis Investing,” which was #1 for 19 weeks. He frequently contributes to and Liberty. Would the children of today’s Europeans end up as servants and maids of the Chinese? Never to pull his punches, Mr Casey says that “America” was not about a country but an idea.
  • 4:30 to 5:30pm: “Austro-libertarianism” by Walter Block
    Dr Block is Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Chair in Economics and Professor of Economics at Loyola University New Orleans and Senior Fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute, USA. Dr Block will give his views on what is Austrian economics and what is libertarianism, and discuss their relationship.
