Adam Smith’s insights into human nature are just as relevant today as they were 300 years ago. What does it take to be truly happy? Should we pursue fame and fortune or the respect of our friends and family? How can we make the world a better place? In this archived book panel, Russ Roberts, John and Jean De Nault Research Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, tackles these questions in a discussion on his book How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life. He is joined by chair Peter Boettke, Director of the F.A. Hayek Program, and commenters Ryan Hanley, Professor of Political Science at Boston College, and Daniel Klein, Professor of Economics at George Mason University.
