At a time when economics and politics are both increasingly polarized between left and right; this book; Adam Smith: What He Thought; and Why it Matters; which Jesse Norman will discuss at this event; returns to intellectual first principles to recreate the lost centre of public debate. It offers a Smithian analysis of contemporary markets; predatory capitalism and the 2008 financial crash; it addresses crucial issues of inequality; human dignity and exploitation; and it provides a compelling explanation of why Smith is central to any attempt to defend and renew the market system.
