The Legacy of Adam Smith
Head of DPE, Prof Mark Pennington has a wide ranging conversation with Jesse Norman MP about his new book on 'Adam Smith: what he thought and why it matters'
“Adam Smith’s answer is that human beings have a basic capacity to observe, to be aware of, and in due course to be moved by the feeling of others. He calls that sympathy.”
How did Smith’s insights into moral sentiments and governance transform the modern world? Do they offer answers to the deepest political challenges of the twenty-first century? Jesse Norman MP sits down with Mark Pennington to discuss his new book on the Governance Podcast.
