Author Talk: John Hill

The Friends are excited to host this timely talk about capitalism in light of current politics.

John Hill is the author of Adams Smith’s Equality and the Pursuit of Happiness

John Hill describes his expected audience as “any thinking person aware of politics” and adds, “Adam Smith, the ‘father of capitalism’, proposed several principles that would help mitigate or eliminate some of the problems we face as a nation today. Many assume that our current laissez-faire capitalism applies his principles. But, in contrast to the libertarianism of the United States, Smith’s recipe to increase everyone’s wealth and happiness was justice, liberty, and equality. His famous book, Wealth of Nations, provides several additional principles that might promote the good life for all. Adam Smith’s Equality and the Pursuit of Happiness explains these principles and offers examples of how they might be applied in the United States today.  I respect different perspectives, so much so that my wife says I sometimes sound like a conservative. It is so important for Americans to be able to speak to each other. Capitalism and happiness seem to be topics that promote discussion.”

John Hill is an award-winning Professor of Politics and History at Curry College. He is also the author of Democracy, Equality and Justice: John Adams, Adam Smith and Political Economy (2007).

Free and open to the public. The author's books will be available for purchase. 

Light refreshments will be provided by the Library Friends group.

This program is sponsored by the Friends Division of the Rockland Memorial Library Foundation, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds to supplement municipal support for library services through membership dues and fundraisers.

Many assume that our current laissez-faire capitalism applies his principles. But, in contrast to the libertarianism of the United States, Smith’s recipe to increase everyone’s wealth and happiness was justice, liberty, and equality. His famous book, Wealth of Nations, provides several additional principles that might promote the good life for all. Adam Smith’s Equality and the Pursuit of Happiness explains these principles and offers examples of how they might be applied in the United States today.  I respect different perspectives, so much so that my wife says I sometimes sound like a conservative. It is so important for Americans to be able to speak to each other. Capitalism and happiness seem to be topics that promote discussion.”

John Hill is an award-winning Professor of Politics and History at Curry College. He is also the author of Democracy, Equality and Justice: John Adams, Adam Smith and Political Economy (2007).

Free and open to the public. The author's books will be available for purchase. 

Light refreshments will be provided by the Library Friends group.

This program is sponsored by the Friends Division of the Rockland Memorial Library Foundation, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds to supplement municipal support for library services through membership dues and fundraisers.
