Tea & Ethics: 'What do we owe the global poor?' Bookmark and Share

Sep 22

4:30 p.m. @ Edwards Recital Hall

"What do we owe the global poor?" will be the topic of discussion at Coastal Carolina University's Tea and Ethics session on Wednesday, Sept. 22 at 4:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The event is free and open to the public.

Nils Rauhut, assistant professor of philosophy and religious studies, and Yoav Wachsman, assistant professor of accounting finance and economics, will focus on two questions: "Are we morally obligated to help the people of the third world countries," and "Is the United States' obligated to help the poor of its own country or is there a greater obligation to help the global poor?" U.S. policies of foreign financial aid will be included in the discussion.

The program will also be given on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 5 p.m. at the Myrtle Beach Higher Education Center 79th Avenue Theatre, located at the intersection of U.S. 17 Bypass and 79th Avenue North.

Tea and Ethics is sponsored by the CCU's Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values. The purpose of the center is to cultivate and promote awareness in the community of the importance of personal and professional integrity.
