Product Description

Saving Adam Smith: A Tale of Wealth, Transformation, and Virtue (9780130659040): Jonathan B. Wight: Books. I thought Wight's book astonishingly good. The storytelling is as good as the business best seller, The Goal, and the economics is better. A few more books like this and economics will no longer be the obscure and dismal science it now seems to the public.--Deirdre McCloskey: Distinguished Professor, University of Illinois and Tinbergen Professor, Rotterdam UniversitySAVING ADAM SMITH uses a modern-day story to give a contemporary voice to the Father of Capitalism, who for too long has been maligned, misquoted and misunderstood, in order to rationalize an economic system that he himself would never have promoted. I recommend this book to anyone who is studying, teaching or engaged in business, as it holds the key for a moral blueprint from which economic integration and trade can be implemented via a socially responsible approach to globalization. Anyone who talks about the invisible hand and doesn't understand the moral context in which it operates has probably never read this book, nor ever had the pleasure of a campfire conversation with Adam Smith!Daniel J. Gertsacov, CEO, Forum on Business and Social Responsibility in the Americas (Forum EMPRESA)We all live in Adam Smith's economic world, but as Jonathan Wight's wise and witty story show us, it's not exactly the world that Smith had in mind. In his lively tale, Wight brings Smith back to remind economics students and readers of all stripe, that we are not here to serve the economy, the economy is here to serve the needs of everyone in our society.Joanne B. Ciulla, is Professor at the University of Richmond and author of The Working Life: The Promise and Betrayal of Modern Work. Wight's tale of adventure presents Smith's insights about self-interest in the wider context of his social philosophy. The book challenges students and economists to follow Smith in making room for justice and conscience in economic choices.David C. Smith President, Council for Ethics in Economics
