Statue of Adam Smith on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and by Edinburgh-born artist Alexander Stoddart – it was unveiled in 2008.
Jesse Norman’s new book on Adam Smith is fascinating. Join us on Monday July 9th for a lunchtime event. Reaction editor Iain Martin (that’s me) will be in conversation with the author – philosopher, Tory MP and minister – about Adam Smith: What He Thought, and Why It Matters. It’s a dazzling new account of the life and thought of Smith. Jesse Norman explains why we need him today more than ever.
A signed hardback of the book (worth £20) is included in the £25 ticket price.
The event is in central London and we will announce the venue nearer the event.
