Adam Smith theory of Moral Sentiments summary

Adam Smith theory of Moral Sentiments summary

Adam Smith is best known for being the father of modern economics with the publishing of his magnum opus The Wealth of Nations.

Adam Smith theories

Modern Monetary Theory is all the rage these days. Slightly unfortunately it’s usually referred to as MMT which can and does also stand for Magic Money Tree.
