Liberty Fund author Henry C. Clark, Professor of History at Canisius College, Buffalo, New York, talks to David Hart, the Director of Liberty Fund’s Online Library of Liberty, about his book Commerce, Culture, and Liberty: Readings on Capitalism before Adam Smith (2003). He discusses the rich intellectual history of capitalism in the 17th and 18th centuries, the contributions of some lesser known French writers as well as the better known English, the impact that commerce had on traditional European societies, the concept of “luxury”, the effect these economic changes had on the lives of women and children, and the links between commerce and individual liberty.
