Jesse Norman is MP for Hereford and South Herefordshire and Financial Secretary to the Treasury, author of ‘Adam Smith: What He Thought, and Why It Matters’ - described by the Financial Times as ‘A superb book’ - and has written many articles on Adam Smith calling him the 'most influential economist who has ever lived'.

Professor Chris Berry is Professor Emeritus (Political Theory) at the School of Social & Political Sciences, University of Glasgow, a leading scholar of Smith and the author of the recently published book ‘Adam Smith - A Very Short Introduction’.

Dr Adina Dudau is Senior Lecturer in Management at the Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow and has recently spoken at the Academy of Management conference on: 'Adam Smith Cared and Should We Too?' focussing on student well-being and resilience.

The panel will be chaired by Professor Ronnie MacDonald, currently a Research Professor in Macroeconomics and International Finance in the Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow prior to which he held the Adam Smith Chair of Political Economy.

The panel will end at 7pm followed by refreshments between 7-8pm.
