 Dominic Frisby Presents Adam Smith: Father of the Fringe
 Nowhere has Adam Smith’s Invisible Hand been harder at work than   at the festival itself. In Smith's own front room, MoneyWeek’s   Dominic   Frisby, author of Life After the State and Bitcoin: The   Future of Money?,   presents a lecture on the economics of the   festival, and how it has   proved the realisation of everything Adam   Smith believed.
 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, 18 August at 12pm. Tickets £12
