Culture of Enterprise
How can free market reforms alleviate global poverty? Does globalization destroy human dignity? What are the cultural underpinnings and institutional prerequisites for a “humane” market economy? These are just a few of the compelling questions that ISI is looking for young scholars and students to address in its exciting new Culture of Enterprise Initiative. Funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation, this new program will sponsor yearly book, article, and student essay awards that seek to identify and publicize the very best that has been written on economics and culture in order to advance the cause of ordered liberty around the world. Also included in the initiative is a path breaking book series and a new nationwide lecture series.
“Can Character and Communities Survive in an Age of Globalization?”
The Culture of Enterprise Project annually sponsors an international student essay contest on the topic “Can Character and Communities Survive in an Age of Globalization?” The contest is designed to encourage students to reflect on the relationship between free enterprise and the institutions and mores that define a particular culture.
Honorable mentions receive a small library of classic texts. Winning essays are published as an ISI monograph and finalists are honored at the ISI Indianapolis Leadership Conference each Spring.
