Texas A&M University-Commerce economics professor Dr. Dale Funderburk says Adam Smith, the great advocate of free markets, and John Maynard Keynes, the father of "Keynesian economics," in which government manages the economy, still dominate economic debate today.  Both celebrated June 5 as their birthday.
