Adam Smith in His Time and Ours: Designing the Decent Society by Jerry Z. Muller

Counter to the popular impression that Adam Smith was a champion of selfishness and greed, Jerry Muller shows that the Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations maintained that markets served to promote the well-being of the populace and that government must intervene to counteract the negative effects of the pursuit of self-interest. Smiths analysis went beyond economics to embrace a larger civilizing project designed to create a more decent society.
