During the spring, the Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism brings students, distinguished professors, activists and other experts on liberty together to study the foundations of a free society. Under the topic “Capitalism: Unlocking Human Potential,” College of Westchester students, Maria Moreira Herrera (BBA-Business) and Jimmy Hernandez (BBA-Accounting), participated in this conference. Both felt the experience was extremely rewarding.

“We were exposed to two important concepts, capitalism and morality,” Maria said. “I learned that the more I have, the more I can help someone else. This may sound selfish, but is not because you’re also learning morality, and how to help others.”

Conference attendees acquire a better understanding of what capitalism and morality are, and how to effectively fight for them.
