Smith as citizen

How can Smith's writings help us think about today's global challenges?

  • Adam Smith was one of the foremost public intellectuals of his time. He actively participated in the cosmopolitan conversation of the Enlightenment and was passionate about the importance of constructive, inclusive and respectful dialogue as a cornerstone of a successful society.

  • In the spirit of Smith's ethos and public intellectualism, Adam Smith was brought back into public debates at a time when we faced with global challenges in reconciling and balancing virtue, wealth, freedom and responsibility - all key Smithian precepts.
