An Invisible Hand For Your Happiness?

/

Adam Smith might be rolling in his grave. 

He only used the phrase "invisible hand" three times in his many writings. 

But it's the phrase for which the 18th-Century Scottish economist is best remembered. 

The memories might change just a bit with Russ Roberts's new book How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness

Roberts joins us to explain the many ways in which Smith's work can be used to improve life in our time.
