Swedish author Johan Norberg explores the life of philosopher and political economist Adam Smith and how his 18th-century concepts remain relevant in the 21st century. Over the course of two episodes, Norberg discusses specifics about Smith's revolutionary views on economics and ethics and how 21st-century businesses have benefited from them. Filmed around the world, from Kirkaldy, Scotland, to Paris and the U.S., the series touches on topics that include how people know right from wrong and whether Smith influenced the writings of America's founders.
