We proceed our have a look at Murray Rothbard’s two quantity An Austrian Perspective on the History of Economic Thought with a present targeted on Adam Smith. Rothbard attacked him mercilessly as a plagiarist who set financial idea again many years together with his muddled views on worth and worth. However was this criticism justified, or was Smith really an early and valiant proponent of laissez-faire?
Our visitor Hunter Hastings defends Smith on this rollicking dialogue, whereas Professor Jonathan Newman shouldn’t be so certain. Additionally they focus on the Scottish Enlightenment and Smithian thinkers like Bentham and Malthus, and even deal with the contentious query of whether or not Smith produced Marx. Do not miss this!
