Reflections on Adam Smith (ft. Mr. Engelhardt)

Hello and welcome back to The Chatler, the Tatler’s podcast series! This month’s episode is hosted by Paul M. ’26.

Are we drifting towards Huxley’s Brave New World? How can capitalism be made more humane? When does rational self-interest work for us all? Tatler staff member Paul M. ’26 sits down with Lakeside Middle School History Teacher Mr. Carl Engelhardt to discuss Adam Smith—the complex nature of consumerism, the wealth of nations, and how we can do better in the future.
