The Invisible Hand


Fiberglass, steel

The free market economy is driven by individual self-interest. Supply and demand interact, making prices go up or down. An equilibrium automatically arises that benefits all. Adam Smith dubbed it ‘the invisible hand’ in 1776. In today’s and tomorrow’s economy the individual is being played in much the same way.
