About the Event:
Benedikt Koehler, '76, is giving a book talk on Early Islam and the Birth of Capitalism on 13 January 2015. Benedikt argues Muhammad and his early successors created the world's first real pro-market society, and capitalism came to Europe when merchants from Italy imported business practices from Islam.

The venue is the Institute of Economic Affairs, a free market think tank in SW1.
