A Visit to Kiawah Island for Golf and Adam Smith

May 25, 2018

Over the weekend, professional members and recent MBA graduates traveled to Kiawah Island, South Carolina, to discuss the modern relevance of Adam Smith.

Kiawah Island DiscussionsUsing both classics texts — excerpts from The Wealth of Nations and The Theory of Moral Sentiments, as well as Bruce Yandel's "Bootleggers and Baptsits" — and contemporary opinion editorials and news articles, Adam Smith expert and Marquette University professor Ryan Patrick Hanley led discussions on self-interest, the “invisible hand,” occupational licensing, protectionism, and more. The group also enjoyed networking and the golf courses of Kiawah Island. Also, there were plenty of alligators, dolphins and other sights on the island!
