Looking at evolution and free markets in the Galapagos Islands

The Mont Pelerin Society has chosen a magnificent setting to explore the philosophical connection between the work of Adam Smith and that of Charles Darwin.  We walk along beaches lined with sea-lions resting in the shade of boats or sleeping on benches intended for humans.  Then we go in to hear presentations on the theme.

Today we heard Prof David Kohn speak on “Adam Smith, Malthus and the creation of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. The came Prof Diego Quiroga talking about “Darwin’s Islands.” This is turning out to be a real intellectual feast. I’ll post a link later to the papers.
