Inheritors of 1776

Inheritors of 1776

Of all the events of 1776, even including the American Declaration of Independence, that which most conditions our daily lives was the publication by Adam Smith of his seminal book The Wealth of Nations. It declared that enlightened self-interest was the most significant driver of the wealth of a country. It is the unique combination of the acceptance of his prescription and, like Marx, the rejection of it, that we now have the economic pickle that we find ourselves in today.

To help us understand where we are, this week's guest In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Triangle Television is a teacher of economics from St Peter’s College in Auckland, Peter Lyons.

Triangle Television, Wednesday 5th of September at 7:00pm and repeated Thursday 6th of September at 12:30pm.
