Prospect Book Club—Jesse Norman
Adam Smith is the most influential economist who ever lived. But what he really thought and what the implications of his ideas are remain fiercely contested. Was he an eloquent advocate of capitalism and the freedom of the individual? Or an apologist for inequality and human selfishness?
Jesse Norman, both a writer and government minister, explores his work as a whole and traces his influence over the past two centuries, and shows us how he can help us solve the problems of modern capitalism. The Smith who emerges from this book is not only the first thinker to place markets at the heart of economics but also a pioneering theorist of moral philosophy, culture and society.
