Capitalism & Greed to be Discussed at Monthly Gathering of Freedom & Virtue Institute

Fort Myers, FL, June 04, 2010 --( The Freedom & Virtue Institute will hold its monthly gathering, called the Hour of Freedom, next Wednesday, June 9 at 6:00 p.m. at The Forest Country Club in south Fort Myers.

The Hour of Freedom is an informal gathering for individuals who believe in the principles of a free society as advocated by America’s founding fathers. The topic this month is Capitalism & Greed. FVI founder, Ismael Hernandez, will discuss how capitalism is often associated with greed and evil practices and is attacked because its only concern is the bottom line. Is that really true? Hernandez will explore the roots of capitalism and make a case for the “entrepreneurial vocation.”

The event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend. The Forest Country Club is located along US 41 between Gladiolus Road/Six Mile Cypress Pkwy and Island Park Road. The address is 6100 Club Boulevard SW, Fort Myers, FL 33908. More information can be found at or by calling (239) 322-8082.
