Nowhere has Adam Smith’s Invisible Hand been harder at work than at the festival itself. In Smith’s own front room, MoneyWeek’s Dominic Frisby, author of Life After the State and Bitcoin: The Future of Money?, presents a lecture on the economics of the festival, and how it has proved the realisation of everything Adam Smith believed. 'So entertaining I would sign up for a full course of lectures should such a thing exist' (National). 'Funny, absorbing and full of historical insights' (Spectator).
