Colloquium on Uberization of the World @ K.J. Somaiya College of Engineering, Mumbai [Nov 3]: Register by Nov 2
South Asia Students for Liberty hosted by KJSCE-Illuminati invites you for our Colloquium at K.J. Somaiya College of Engineering, Mumbai on 3rd November 2018.
Venue: K.J Somaiya College of Engineering, Mumbai
Time : 10 am to 4 pm
Uber has been at the forefront of a revolution that is connecting willing parties to transact at far lower costs than the pre-Uber era. The quality of an Uber-ride, the size of of Amazon’s marketplace and the consistently good hotel service by OYO deserves more than appreciation. It deserves a pause and a thought towards the revolution that is the Uber-economy.
In this South Asia Students for Liberty colloquium brought to you by KJSCE-Illuminati and powered by Acton Institute, Michigan, we shall explore the institutions that have allowed the Uberization of the World by exploring the thoughts of thinkers like Joseph Schumpeter, James Buchannan, Frederic Bastiat, and Israel Kirzner.
The colloquium on this topic will raise questions like: Who is an entrepreneur? What are the institutions that support entrepreneurship? What explains the widespread political backlash to Uber? What is the worth of the middlemen in a transaction? Is price gouging immoral? and more!
About SFL Colloquia:
How often have you watched a debate and felt, ‘both sides have some valid points if only they stopped trying to prove each other wrong and tried to listen’. The nature of a debate is competitive and oppositional with both sides trying to prove each other wrong.
An SFL Colloquium is a collaborative, cooperative dialogue in which multiple sides work toward a shared understanding.
Dialogue assumes that many people have pieces of answers and that cooperation can lead to a greater understanding. It creates an open-minded attitude; an openness to being wrong and an openness to change while respecting other participants.
Registration for the event is FREE. All participants will be provided with Certificates of Participation as well one outstanding student will get the opportunity to attend the SASFL-Acton Socratic Camp.
We have a limited number of seats and hence register here at the earliest before 1st November 2018.
