Update on my Adam Smith conference

I presented my work on “Adam Smith in Love” at the annual meeting of the International Adam Smith Society (IASS), which took place at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. (As an aside, I am currently working on a sequel to my Adam Smith paper, which is tentatively titled “Adam Smith in Paris”, in anticipation of the next meeting of the IASS, to take place at the University of the Andes in Bogota, Colombia in July of 2022.) Suffice it to say that many excellent papers — and two books! — were presented at this year’s conference, but my three favorite presentations were the following:

  1. Toshiaki Ota: “The Roles of Judges in Adam Smith’s Jurisprudence”
  2. Maria Pia Paganelli: “Adam Smith’s Digression on Silver: The Centerpiece of The Wealth of Nations
  3. Sarah Skwire: “As If: Clueless About the Invisible Hand”

Alas, I have a flight to catch, and in any case, I am unable to provide a direct link to any of these three wonderful works as they have not yet been published, but I will summarize each paper and comment on them over the next few days after I return home to Central Florida …
