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.
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
The two speaking events will be part of “Mises University” week and the live audience will consist of enrolled students.
