Anne McElvoy of The Economist delves into the life of the father of economics, Adam Smith in this podcast. Many of the same issues that Adam Smith discussed in the 1700s are still being disputed today. In the current political economy there are still debates of free trade vs. protectionism, unregulated markets, how much tax is too much tax, and how to make the economy work for every social class.

Discussion Prompt 1: How would the Adam Smith feel about the current degree of government involvement in the economy? Should governments be able to regulate economic markets?
