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? When Russ Roberts finally picked up Adam Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments, he realized he’d stumbled upon what might be the greatest self-help book that almost no one has read. In this book panel, Russ Roberts discusses his new book How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life. He is joined by chair Peter Boettke and commenters Ryan Hanley and Daniel Klein.
