Thursday, March 1, 20187:00:00 PM - Exit, Voice and Loyalty: The life and lessons of Albert O. Hirschman - What is the best way to respond to problems with a business you work for or trade with, a nation you are a citizen of, a marriage that you are in, a family you belong to, or a class you have enrolled in? Should you stay or go? Should you speak up or not? If no one listens or cares to your concerns, how do you respond? Despite problems, what or who deserves your fidelity? Dr. Steve Huenneke will host a discussion on economist Albert O. Hirschman (1915 – 2012) and his masterpiece, a book entitled Exit, Voice and Loyalty (1970). His work covers the terrain of questions such as these ones – questions that are so relevant to the life of every individual who lives in a world of flawed institutions and relationships. Hirschman had an amazing and long life which involved vivid examples of choosing to exit or speak up, and of deciding whether or not to remain loyal.
