Dean Niemis certi?cate program analyzes the evolution of American capitalism and the global challenges ahead. Attendees can experience the same esteemed business education offered to SMU Cox students while broadening their understanding of todays complex economic environment in its historical context. The problem of social organization is how to set up an arrangement under which greed will do the least harm. Capitalism is that kind of a system. Milton Friedman Albert Niemi, dean of the SMU Cox School of Business, has been studying the American economy for more than 40 years. He is quick to explain that, while private enterprise drove the countrys growth and made America the richest nation in the world, there is a legitimate role for government to protect the public interest. Capitalism is kind of like organized greed; its built on self-interest, he says. So when the pursuit of self-interest con?icts with the public good, who acts as the referee? The government. Sometimes capitalism needs boundaries because what is best for the bottom line is not necessarily best for the public good. The government has to play the watchdog role. Dean Niemi adds that sometimes it takes an act of Congress to protect people. Abolition of slavery, child labor laws, worker safety, handicap access, sexual discrimination, equal pay for equal work and environmental protection all resulted from governmental action when the quest for pro?tability might have otherwise prevailed and brought about unacceptable social ills.
