Revisiting Adam Smith

Salon Discussion | Brent Waters | April 16, 2024

On April 16th at the Columbia Club in Downtown Indianapolis, we held a salon discussion led by Brent Waters focused on revisiting Adam Smith. This featured conversations on topics including morality, economics, politics, and many more. The event also included a rare book exhibit featuring a couple of our historical Adam Smith works, among other works related to the discussion. Thanks again to Brent Waters and every one joined us for this 90-minute socratic discussion!
