Happy birthday, Adam Smith – @ASI

June 16th is Adam Smith’s birthday.

His namesake organisation, the Adam Smith Institute summarises his influence:

“Smith’s ideas were highly influential. The great free-trade era they ushered in, and the enormous rise in wealth it created—particularly for the poor—did indeed amaze the world.”

A great overview and a reminder for those tempted by populist, drawbridge politics.
