The World Bank, defense spending, and PBS’s Bill Moyers all fall victim to the irreverant wit of America's most provocative humorist, P.J. O'Rourke, through the lens crafted by Adam Smith and his groundbreaking work, "The Wealth of Nations." In a hilarious talk based on his own new book, "On the Wealth of Nations: Books That Changed the World," O'Rourke will share his insight on why Smith is still so relevant, and why what now seems obvious was once considered revolutionary.
