Free markets are under more dangerous attack, whether legislatively or intellectually, than they have been for decades. With every sign that this attack is going to intensify in the years to come and few signs of an effective pushback, NRI has collaborated with National Review to form National Review Capital Matters. This initiative includes a new section on featuring daily commentary and analysis on business, finance, and economics with a distinctly NR sensibility and complementary NRI-sponsored events, webinars, forums, and conference calls. In the same spirit that led William F. Buckley Jr. to found National Review, NRI is proud to collaborate on this new project to explain, defend, and celebrate capitalism. Through timely commentary from well-known financiers, economists, entrepreneurs, business people, and other specialists, the objective of this initiative is to change the terms of debate over our country’s economic future for the better. At the helm of this initiative is the NRCM editor, Andrew Stuttaford, who had a long career in finance and has also been writing for National Review for decades, and Kevin Hassett, former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, who serves as NRCM senior adviser.
