eBay Featured in Documentary: The Real Adam Smith - Ideas That Changed the World

By: eBay News Team

The film, which explores trust in an open marketplace, is currently running on PBS affiliates across the country.

In 1995, Pierre Omidyar founded eBay, with the underlying principle that people are basically good.  In the 20+ years since, eBay has continued to evolve and expand, but the core philosophy of Pierre’s original open marketplace remains strong.  

The Free to Choose Network, working in partnership with Swedish author Johan Norberg, recently released the two-hour documentary exploring the life of 18th century philosopher Adam Smith and his ideas on morality and economics.  The second segment, Ideas that Changed the World, is now airing on PBS channels across the country and you can view the film online, in its entirety here.
