"Why is Adam Smith's importance more significant than ever? Join me as I interview Dr Eamonn Butler, Chairman and Founder of the Adam Smith Institute to explore this question. As we mark 300 years since Adam Smith's birth, the author of "Wealth of Nations" thoughts have been much discussed, but what can we as entrepreneurs today take from his thinking? One question I want to explore is whether we should be utilising the global recognition of Adam Smith more in our own promotion of Scotland as a centre for purpose lead entrepreneurialism ie. how does his thinking fit with the rise of the social enterprise economy?" - Russell Dalgeish, Member of the Board of Advisors - Asia Scotland Institute
