By The Book:
Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations

(RTE Lyric FM, Sunday, Oct 21, 10pm)

Journalist, PJ O’Rourke offers his hilarious whistle-stop tour of one of the Eighteenth century's most influential works. Championed in the era of Thatcherism and Reganomics as the philosopher of the free-market and the prophet of ‘trickle down’ Adam Smith’s work continues to gather disciples. Although, as tonight’s guest, “Republican party Animal” PJ O’Rourke suggests, few of these acolytes read completely, or completely understand, this massive work.

By The Book is written, produced and presented by Luke Clancy
By The Book is a SoundsDoable production for RTELyricFM
Original music for the series is by Kevin Brew
