New Media  | 13 de octubre de 2014  | Vistas: 58

In this interview Daniel Klein points out the relevance of the ideas of Adam Smith still in the 21st Century, because he works with the basis of human nature to understand our reality, to expound the importance of economy in creating wealth. Klein reveals that there is more to Adam Smith's ideas that solely the theory of the Invisible Hand. Smith affirms the ethic of universal benevolence and that we all have the responsibility to create a better world.
