He then explores several impressiveinitiatives to demonstrate what today's theoretical and practicingeconomists are accomplishing in the spirit of Adam Smith's moralsentiments: the institutional reform of transitional and developingeconomies; the financing of new technological, medical, andeducational initiatives; and the economic revival of cities.Capitalism pervades every aspect of our daily life. Peter Doughertynow offers a fascinating peek at its hidden soul.
