THE REAL ADAM SMITH

The Real Adam Smith: Ideas That Changed the World

  • Aired: 07/26/2016

  • Rating: NR
Ideas That Changed the World explores contemporary life and Smith’s influences on the very things we see going on today. Why is Smith widely studied now in China? Ethical businesses, like Whole Foods, showcase the morality Smith insisted was critical to thriving markets. Uber and eBay demonstrate that markets can thrive through the organization and “self-policing” of the participants themselves.
