Is capitalism broken? How would Adam Smith respond to current calls to reform capitalism? How should business leaders respond to income inequality? When will the next recession happen? To find answers to all these questions and more, join us for drinks, appetizers, and a lively discussion at our annual summer reception in the Bay Area. 

Frances Newton Stacy, Fox Business commentator and directory of portfolio strategy at Optimal Capital, and Adam Lashinsky, executive editor of Fortune, will be leading the discussion.
