Wealth Creation and Human Flourishing

Wealth Creation and Human Flourishing

Sunday, June 26, 2011, 6:00 PM - Monday, June 27, 2011, 1:00 PM

Adam Smith's landmark book, The Wealth of Nations, is considered the world's first book in modern economics and it remains a defining book in understanding how wealth is gained and managed.  Yet Smith considered his other book The Theory of Moral Sentiments to be his more important work since it establishes the virtuous blueprint to order society within a free market system.

On June 26-27, 2011, Sagamore Institute and Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU) considered themes from both of Smith’s books at a conference in London entitled “Wealth Creation and Human Flourishing” This event followed a series of National Conversations co-hosted by Sagamore and IWU.  Previous events include a forum on healthcare in Indianapolis, Indiana, on February 19, 2010 and a debate about education reform in Washington, DC, on October 21-22, 2010.

The London event was hosted at One Great George Street in Westminster and was moderated by Scott Jaschik, editor and founder of Inside Higher Ed. Speakers included The Right Honorable Iain Duncan Smith, British Member of Parliament; Ryan Streeter (Sagamore); Lawrence Reed (Foundation for Economic Education); Tom Lehman (IWU professor of economics); Eve Poole (Ashridge Business School); and Philip Booth (Institute for Economic Affairs).
