Even Adam Smith Didn’t Trust the Invisible Hand, with Thomas Piketty
 
04:05
In this Big Think interview, economist Thomas Piketty delves into several common misconceptions about free market economics. Piketty argues that strong public institutions are necessary for market regulation. So-called "natural forces" of self-regulation commonly associated with the writings of Adam Smith cannot be relied on to maintain a healthy economic climate. An example of this is the heavy trend toward deregulation that spurred the 2007/2008 financial crisis. Piketty warns that the tepid regulatory response to the Great Recession could very well come back to bite us. Thomas Piketty is the best-selling author of Capital in the Twenty-First Century. Read more at BigThink.com: http://goo.gl/O8uR Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: A very optimistic view of how the market works, which sometimes is associated to Adam Smith, is the view that you have self-regulation of the market and that the natural forces, natural market forces can take care of everything, and in particular can ensure that inequality will never increase to such an extent that it becomes socially and economically and politically useless or even dangerous for that matter. Now I think, in fact if you reread Adam Smith or if you try to look at the economic developments throughout history you see that you cannot expect everything from the market. You cannot just rely on natural forces to solve all problems. And I think one of the conclusions from the history of political economy and the history of economic growth and inequality is that you need strong public institutions in order to put this powerful market forces in the right direction. Market forces can produce a lot of innovation, a lot of incentives for inventions and entrepreneurship and this is very positive. But it would be a mistake to rely and count on these natural forces to sort of self regulate themselves. And if you look in particular at the period going up to the financial crisis of 2007/2008, you have a very large concentration of economic gains into a relatively small group of the population. And I think everybody agrees today that this has contributed not only to the stagnation of median household income but also to the rise of household debt, which in turn put pressure on the financial system and probably did contribute to fragilize the financial system with the consequences that we know in terms of financial crisis, recession, unemployment, which we are now starting to get out of this, but there has been many years of lost growth and a lot of social suffering because of this. So we need strong public institutions in order to regulate these market forces. And sometimes there's really excessive phase in these forces. There are cycles over history. Probably after the Great Depression, after World War II people realized that market forces need to be strongly regulated. And then starting in the '70s and the '80s with Reagan and cultural revolution and even more so after the fall of the Soviet Union, we entered in the 1990s and 2000 in a new cycle of sometimes unlimited phase in the self regulation of markets. And to a large extent we are still in this phase. And I think there's a reaction, a policy reaction to the financial crisis of 2007/2008 has been too limited so far. And this could happen again. We've asked a lot to our central banks in the U.S. and in Europe. And of course it's easy to print billions of dollars or billions of euros to avoid complete bankruptcy of a financial system, which is what happened in the 1930s and which ended up in a complete catastrophe. So it's better to avoid that. But at the same time printing money is not enough to solve the central problem that we need to solve. So the good news is that we avoided a complete bankruptcy and complete depression, but the bad news is that we did not really solve the structural problems which might in the future create new crisis.

3 Reasons to Love Adam Smith

Download the free Philosophy Ebook http://vkanimations.com/philosophy-ebook/ This is an animation Adm Smith who was a Scottish philosopher, journalist and author. He was born: 16 June 1723, and he died: 17 July 1790. 1) The Invisible Hand The best way to understand the invisible hand is to break sown this concept into three phases. Individual interest in trade, the benefits to society and this process works as if there is an invisble hand. 2) The Educated Consumer We have an issue with the consumer... therefore an educated consumer would make better decisions and this would create new demands and therefore would create better bussinesses suited these demands. 3) No Government regulation Adam is against Government and business partnerships or Government intervention in bussiness. The first issue is that through this relationship a lot of money is consumed by lobbying. Also regulation removes competition. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Any inquiries or correspondence: [email protected] ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Amazon affiliate links 1) The Philosophy Book http://amzn.to/2jggEgP

Economics is Fun, Part 18: Regulation
 
02:48
Dr Madsen Pirie, President of the Adam Smith Institute, is attempting to prove that economics is fun. His new book, Economics Made Simple: How Money, Trade and Markets Really Work, is available from Amazon now in paper and Kindle formats: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Economics-Made-Simple-Harriman-Essentials/dp/085719142X How do banks work? What does the City do? Why do prices rise or fall? Is competition wasteful? How can we create more wealth? What causes globalization and how does it affect people? This book answers these and other questions, not in the way that economics textbooks do - with graphs, abstract models, jargon-ridden theory, and mathematical equations - but through narrative and lucid explanation rooted in everyday experience and common-sense intuitions. This is a personal school of economics for anyone who has ever wanted to know how money, trade and markets really work. The study of economics has never been so enjoyable - or eye-opening.

The Real Adam Smith: Ideas That Changed The World - Full Video

The Real Adam Smith: A Personal Exploration by Johan Norberg, takes an intriguing, two-part look at Smith and the evolution and relevance of his ideas today, both economic and ethical. It’s difficult to imagine that a man who lived with horse drawn carriages and sailing ships would foresee our massive 21st century global market exchange, much less the relationship between markets and morality. But Adam Smith was no ordinary 18th century figure. Considered the “father of modern economics,” Smith was first and foremost a moral philosopher. The revolutionary ideas he penned in The Wealth of Nations and The Theory of Moral Sentiments, changed the world. Norberg explores Smith’s insights regarding free trade and the nature of wealth to the present, where they are thriving and driving the world’s economy. In the second hour, Ideas That Changed The World, Norberg traces Smith’s insights regarding the benefits of free trade and the nature of wealth to the present, where they are currently in operation. He talks with some of the most distinguished Adam Smith scholars, as well as leaders of some of the world’s most admired companies to discover how Smith’s ideas continue to be relevant and drive the global economy today.

Books don't create movements, movements create books | Seth Adam Smith | TEDxSarasota
 
11:34
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Have you ever wanted to publish a successful book? If so, you might want to rethink your publishing strategy! Many aspiring authors have it backwards: they think that the speaking, touring, marketing, and movement happens after their book is published. In reality, an author should be creating a movement BEFORE their book is published. In 2013, author Seth Adam Smith's blog went viral after he posted an article titled "Marriage Isn't For You." The article received over 30 million views, was translated into over twenty languages, and landed him three book deals. But Seth's path to success began long before that. In this video, he shares insight on how to start a movement that creates a book. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Michael Walzer on Adam Smith
 
01:38
Michael Walzer reminds us that the hero of American capitalism was a complicated philosopher. Michael Walzer:  He was a very complicated philosopher. He wrote a book about the moral sentiments, which is a wonderful book, and "The Wealth of Nations" is a wonderful book. No, I don't think he's wrong. In fact, I suspect that a close reading of his book would suggest that you can't take, that he didn't take the invisible hand as some kind of magic mechanism. He thought you did need some regulation of the markets to make it... to make, first of all, certainly you needed the police, you needed to control fraud, you needed to protect consumers against fraudulent behavior , and you needed to protect the competitors against various kinds of illegal uses of force or deceit. But, I think, probably you need a stronger state than he contemplated once you have a full-fledged corporate capitalist system. Michael Walzer:  He was a very complicated philosopher.

Libertarian philosophy: How do you like being told what to do? Learn more: http://bit.ly/1HVA If someone tells you to do something you find enjoyable or fulfilling, you may not mind. What if you are told to do something contrary to what you would choose for yourself? What if the government was the one telling you to do it? Adam Smith, the philosopher and father of economics, talks about a "man of system," a central planner who believes he can orchestrate the lives of others, like chess pieces that can be moved at will. As Professor James R. Otteson illustrates, society suffers when the man of system attempts to force his desires on the lives of individuals in ways that contradict their own desires. According to Smith, people are not chess pieces to be moved on a board; they are living and thinking and have their own wills. Individuals pursuing their own desires will constantly be in conflict with the desires of any central planner.

There is a kernel of truth in that. Let’s continue our story. With the invention of banking as described by Adam Smith (check out parts 1 and 2), sovereigns actually lost a lot of power ... power that they were already very used to having. As the ones in charge of minting they could anytime inflate their quantity of money … and secretly rob their subject’s of the value of their work. Think of it like this: When barter is split into the two transactions of giving and receiving (check out our video “Money vs Love” about that), money is like a voucher that represents the amount of value that was given, so that something of equivalent value can be taken later. But if in the in-between time someone creates the same amount of money out of thin air, they can now squeeze themselves into the middle of the two transactions and take half of what YOU were supposed to be taking. In a sense inflation is the easiest tax a sovereign can levy … and Adam Smith’s banks were threatening that power. So what was the solution? The central bank! Modern central banks are designed to replace the regulation of the quantity of money through precious metal (like in the banking system Adam Smith described) … with their own arbitrary rule. Central banks went through a couple of iteration until their modern format and we can talk about the history of central banks in another video. For now let’s look at how modern central banks break that elegant mechanism that Adam Smith described 200 years ago. Step by step guide to taking control of your country’s banking using a central bank! Step 1: Guarantee client deposits. That’s one of those things that looks nice on paper … and later blows up in your face. Remember, Adam Smith’s banks were very conservative about giving out credit, because they were afraid of running low on deposits and having to borrow deposits at a high interest rate from another bank. Now if deposits are guaranteed no matter what, there is nothing stopping banks from issuing credit like crazy. Basically the equivalent of a teenage girl on a shopping spree with daddy’s credit card. And clients don’t have a reason to investigate if their bank is behaving responsibly and if it’s solvent. Step 2: Regulate banks. This is a consequence of step one. Banks behaving like teenage kids need Daddy to create some rules. And it’s a great opportunity for the big banks to help the central bank write the regulations (in a way that keeps out competitors). Who else really understands banking as well as them. And the central bank can shine as the knight in shining armor saving the economy from the evil banks. Step 3: Become the lender of last resort. Instead of banks borrowing from each other when they run low on deposits, they now borrow from you, the central bank. At the same time declare deposits of your credit notes as valuable as actual precious metal deposits. That way you control all deposits. Eventually just replace all the precious metals deposits with your credit notes and hoar the gold so that people don’t get any ideas, like trying to use gold as money again. There you go! Now you’re in control and can inflate your country’s money just like in the good old days. Remember Adam Smith’s banks charged high interest rates when they lent their deposits, because they really needed them back soon to stay solvent themselves? Your central bank has no such worries. It has infinite deposits in the form of its own credit notes that it doesn’t really need back at all. It can lower the interest rate it charges for the deposits to less than what banks charge their clients to incentivize the banks to borrow from them and give out more credit to their clients. It can even set the rate at 0% or go negative when they really really want banks to borrow more deposits. Think about that! A negative interest rate is so exotic that we need to think through what it actually is. A negative interest rate means that I pay you to borrow my money. Who would do that? Only a central bank. When they set negative interest rates they pay banks to borrow more deposits from them. Yeah, it’s not as straightforward as back in the days where you’d just make more coins and then had more coins. You have to pretend that you’re protecting the economy and your citizens, and reroute the ...

Free Market Masters: Adam Smith
 
05:42
Adam Smith is a name that will be familiar to most people. The ‘father of Economics’ is a famous historical figure with statues in his honour and his likeness on the £20 note. But most people have little idea why he is famous or what he said This is a pity, because although Smith lived in Scotland in the eighteenth century, his ideas are as alive and relevant today as they have been at anytime in the last 250 years. Craig Smith, Lecturer in the Scottish Enlightenment, University of Glasgow, explores how, in a world of globalisation, Smith’s study of international and domestic trade cuts straight to the heart of the forces that shape all our lives. When we look around the world at the millions being raised from poverty in India and China, we see the forces that Smith sought to understand. Smith helped to shape the world that we live in and there’s no better place to begin to understand that world than the writings of this modest Scottish Philosopher.

Ten Thousand Commandments: Esoteric Adam Smith
 
46:17
Ten Thousand Commandments: Adam Smith’s Moral Sentiments as an Esoteric Critique of Interventionism Lecture by Daniel B. Klein at the Ratio Institute, Stockholm, 17 March 2015 Daniel Klein reads Adam Smith's The Theory of Moral Sentiments as a great work of political liberalism. The book contains a good deal of esoteric writing, using, in particular the device that Arthur Melzer calls "dissembling the true target": The author appears to be criticizing Y, but, between the lines, his real target is X. Klein purports instances of Smith dissembling the true target. In one instance, the true target is the slave trade. But the chief instance to be discussed is Smith condemnation of government interventionism, implicit in his withering critique of the books of casuistry (guides to confessors in the Catholic church), which Smith described as "tiresome," "useless," "disagreeable," and guilty of "frivolous accuracy". Smith explains why a complex world calls for simple rules and individual sovereignty, not ten thousand commandments, and especially not commandments of "frivolous accuracy" backed by the police power of government. (The footage in this video is from a subsequent reshoot of the Ratio lecture.) Video Editor: Matthew Pierce For the PPT slides, click here: http://ratio.se/app/uploads/2015/04/10k_gmu_dklein.pptx

Bitcoin Is More Than a Bubble And Here To Stay
 
01:39:02
Is Bitcoin here to stay, or is it a bubble waiting to pop? Less than a decade old, Bitcoin is worth billions. The cryptocurrency promises to revolutionize global finance by placing control of currency in the hands of users, not nations, and make financial exchanges more transparent, efficient, and democratic. And it seems to be taking hold: Earlier this year both the Cboe and CME debuted Bitcoin futures. But is Bitcoin really a safe bet? Proponents say the hype around the cryptocurrency is warranted, and previous critics – including executives at JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs – are increasingly jumping on the Bitcoin (block)train. On the other hand, skeptics suggest this highly volatile digital currency offers a platform for illicit activity, including money laundering and trafficking of humans and drugs, free from government oversight and regulation. And, they argue, Bitcoin has no intrinsic value – the price is based on market enthusiasm rather than actual utility. This debate is presented in partnership with the Adam Smith Society. The Adam Smith Society — a project of the Manhattan Institute — is an expansive, chapter-based network of MBA students, professionals, and business leaders who work to foster debate about the moral, social, and economic benefits of capitalism.

Ep. 51: How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life (with Russ Roberts)
 
52:00
Russ Roberts joins us on this week's episode of Free Thoughts to talk about his new book, How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life: An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness (2014). What drives us to be concerned about others? In the Wealth of Nations, Smith says people are basically self-interested, and this is what drives market economies. Does this mean he's saying people are selfish? Smith has a pretty simple formula for happiness. "Man naturally desires, not only to be loved, but to be lovely." What does he mean by that? Can the study of economics really be about finding better ways to care for others...by recognizing that people are self-interested? How does that work? Russ Roberts is a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and is also the host of the popular EconTalk podcast.
