The Wealth of Nations Lectures promote frontier research in Economics and stimulate and advance policy debate. We welcome leading figures of the profession – individuals whose research spans the progress and development of Economics as a science, and whose work has shaped public policy debate and design in recent years.
This series champions robust exchange and interaction in the spirit of ADAM SMITH – aptly delivered from his final remaining home – and aims to contribute to prosperity and the development of society more widely.”
