Roberts shares his experience of playing Adam Smith and the economic lessons he learned. Roberts also touches on Smith’s Theory of Moral Sentiments, including what influences our decisions and the idea of an invisible hand guiding our decisions. In all our interactions we want to not only be loved but to be lovely.
