O'Rourke on Smith

P.J. O’Rourke appeared recently on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show.  (The occasion is the release of the paperback version of O’Rourke’s book on Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations.)  Here’s the Daily Show clip.

In this clip O’Rourke isn’t perfect on Smith — O’Rourke’s chief goal in this clip is to be funny, rather than scholarly.  But he’s got a few good lines.  I like especially the one about Smith wanting to "decentralize our badness."
