NationalReview launches business and finance section
National Review has launched a new venture, Capital Matters, a new section of commentary and analysis on business, finance, and economics from well-known financiers, economists, entrepreneurs, business people, and other specialists.
The new section will also feature events, webinars, forums and conference calls.
“National Review has been engaged in the fight for free markets for decades, but given the renewed intensity of the assault against them, we are calling in reinforcements in the form of Capital Matters, which will be energetic, vigilant, and fearless,” said Rich Lowry, National Review editor-in-chief.
Capital Matters editor Andrew Stuttaford will run the new initiative and will be joined by Kevin Hassett, former chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, who will serve as senior advisor.
Stuttaford who has had a long career in finance and has also been writing for National Review. He notes:
“The battle of ideas is not won by default. At a time when free markets are under attack not only by the left, but by some on the right, there are too few spaces remaining for those who dissent. The National Review Capital Matters initiative intends to push back against the creation of an intellectual, corporate, and political regime where free markets are either the enemy or an afterthought, by becoming a platform for writers, economists, business people and others to explore, explain, and make the case for an idea of individual enterprise that is, in turn, inextricably linked to the principle of individual freedom.”
