Stanford University drops pro-capitalism course; keeps one questioning free market

- The Washington Times - Friday, March 22, 2013

A popular course with a pro-capitalism slant has been cut from Stanford University course listings.

Called "Moral Foundations of Capitalism," the class received rave reviews.

"This is one of the most fantastic courses that I have taken at Stanford," said one student, in a written review of the class, as reported by The Daily Caller.

"Definitely offer this course again," wrote another student.

Stanford Center for Ethics in Society officials, who sponsored the class, said they'd rather invest money somewhere else, The Daily Caller reports. That "somewhere" includes a course that offers a seeming opposite view of the free market.

The Center of Ethics is still sponsoring its class, the "Moral Limits of the Market."
