We've all heard of Adam Smith's "invisible hand" that guides the free market. The invisible foot is the invisible hand's brutish older brother. It is the force that sees to it that capital gets reallocated from firms that aren't doing their jobs to firms that are by putting the former out of business.”

“Does the Invisible Hand Need a Transparent Glove? The Politics of Transparency.”
Shellie Karabel, who “has spent more than four decades as an international broadcast journalist covering most major international new events since 1980 throughout Western and Eastern Europe and the Middle East for outlets such as ABC News, PBS, AP Broadcast, and CNBC", posts the following absolutely untrue statement about Adam Smith on Forbes HERE 
Adam Smith spoke of the “miracle of the ‘invisible hand’,” – a metaphor for “hidden market dynamics that bring about a socially optimal outcome when self-interested agents (“businessmen”) in a market try to maximize their personal benefits.” 
May I suggest that Shellie read Adam Smith first before asertively passing on made-up nonsense about what Smith said when he used the metaphor of “an invisible hand?  

His actual words bear no resemblance to what she alleges.
