Form of the Firm

Date: Thursday, January 17th 
Time: 6:00- 7:30 PM
Location: Schreiber Center, 10th floor 
Contact: Seth Green at sgreen12@luc.edu

Join us for a discussion of The Form of the Firm, a new book from Oxford University Press that offers “a profound rethinking of what a corporation actually is and how power within it ought to be structured and exercised.” The book, written by Loyola professor, Abraham Singer, argues that corporations are not simply private economic organizations, but governing institutions. Because of this, they have political obligations to live up to and uphold the norms of liberal democracy and social justice. Our gathering will start with a snapshot of the book from Singer, followed by comments from entrepreneur and private equity advisor Brian Abrams and University of Chicago professor James Lindley Wilson.
