Football and Adam Smith

Hardly needs a comment, but welcome nevertheless.

My two great passions – football (the UK version, not the ‘handball’ game called ‘football’ in the US!) and Adam Smith - mentioned together on something they have in common: Two of the great 12 books of modern civilization, and both from Scotland!

From the Daily Record (Glasgow, but widely read all over Scotland) 8 September 2005

THE original rules of football are among 12 books which changed the world, a TV series claims. The rules, drawn up in 1863, take their place among weighty tomes like Scot Adam Smith's The Wealth Of Nations - the cornerstone of economics.”
