Noticed by Other Blogs 1

I've noticed recently that Adam Smith's Lost Legacy is being noticed on other Blogs in the Blogosphere and previously I have done nothing about it.

My reader may be interested that he/she is not alone in reading Lost Legacy on a regular basis, so in future when a Blog refers to Lost Legacy is will post a note here for you to follow up, and hopefully enjoy

Today's posting from Lost Legacy is on Sophistpundit at:

which picks on my morning post about Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts, a candidate for the Republican Party nomination for President, and his impolite swipe at Hilary Clinton, a candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for President.

Have a look at Sophistpundit ('Self-consciously Pretentious Since November 16, 2004') HERE.

Oh, great. This means I have to stop citing you (as per Chris Dillow's dictum here.

Hey, thanks! I just recently started using Google Reader, which allows me to keep track of who's updating and read many many more blog posts than I've ever been able to before. So I saw that you'd updated and felt like you did justice to a concept that no one ever seems to pay lip service to--the fact that the free market, which is often characterized as a place that isolates and exploits, is actually a community of individuals who depend upon one another.

The "free" part of "free market" is just the fact that that interdependence is built upon choices made by the individuals themselves; doesn't change the fact that we're all in this together, as they say.

No, no .. please keep citing! Thanks

You are so right about the 'free market', and unfortunately far too wide a term with multiple meanings.

Dependence on each other as individuals is the key; Rousseau got this wrong and made freedom to choose a form of 'slavery'. I shall post a comment on your comment on the main board today.
