Interactive video lesson plan for: Adam Smith - The Inventor of Market Economy I THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Activity overview:

Adam Smith was one of the first men who explored economic connections in England and made clear, in a time when Mercantilism reigned, that the demands of the market should determine the economy and not the state. In his books Smith was a strong advocator of the free market economy. Today we give you the biography of the man behind the classic economic liberalism and how his ideas would change the world forever.
