The Soho Forum is a monthly debate series held in Soho/Noho, Manhattan. A project of the Reason Foundation, the series features topics of special interest to libertarians and aims to enhance social and professional ties within the NYC libertarian community.
Moderated by Gene Epstein, former economics editor of Barron’s, The Soho Forum features some of the most highly regarded speakers across varied fields. At each event, the audience actively engages with the speakers, votes on the resolution, and there is a social reception that follows.
After hosting a debate up north at PorcFest in New Hampshire, the Soho Forum is headed down south — to Auburn, Alabama.
On Tuesday, July 26, 7:00 PM ET at the Mises Institute in Auburn, Alabama, Soho Forum Director Gene Epstein will be moderating a debate on the question: Has gold lost its glitter?
The debate resolution reads: Gold will remain an important form of money in the 21st century.
Taking the affirmative: Keith Weiner, CEO of Monetary Metals.
Taking the negative: Pierre Rochard, co-host of the Bitcoin for Advisors podcast
Earlier in the evening, Soho Forum Director Gene Epstein will also be giving a talk titled, “The Dirty Data of Declining Labor Share Myths.”
The two speaking events will be part of “Mises University” week and the live audience will consist of enrolled students.
However, Mises is making both talks available on livestream for $6. Register to attend the livestream by clicking here.
