Featured Speaker: David Rose, Ph.D., Professor of Economics, University of Missouri – St. Louis
Economist and author of The Moral Foundation of Economic Behavior, Dr. David Rose, explains why moral beliefs play an important role in the development and operation of free market societies. For a society to enjoy general prosperity, a climate of trust is necessary to support many of the free market institutions we take for granted in countries like the U.S. Dr. Rose explains why such trust cannot be derived from our genetic hardwiring or from institutions and can only come from culturally transmitted moral beliefs that possess specific characteristics.

Conservation Conversations Series
Featured Speaker: Randall Hyman, professional photojournalist and writer. His photo essays and articles have appeared in Smithsonian, National Wildlife, American History, British Heritage, Wildlife Conservation and various National Geographic publications.
Randall Hyman takes his audience exploring glaciers, sitting astride icebergs, peering down seal holes in the frozen Arctic Ocean and edging along sheer cliffs amid breeding seabirds. From mid April through early August of this year, Hyman traveled the Norwegian Arctic as an Independent Fulbright Scholar on research ships, coast guard vessels, snowmobiles and ice floes collecting stories, photos and videos about Norway’s struggle with climate change. Norwegian scientists are racing to understand carbon cycle mechanisms, species interactions and long-term climate outlooks as sea ice vanishes and Arctic temperatures continue to climb twice as fast as the global average. If the Arctic is the testing ground for rapid climate change, Norway, with its abundant wealth and excellent environmental record, may be the world’s best test case for how to deal with realities on the ground.
