Adam Smith's Take on Laissez Faire Noticed in Canada

Another mention of Lost Legacy’s take on Adam Smith and laissez faire.

Marc Lee of The Progressive Economics Forum, posts under the heading “Adam Smith did not wear an Adam Smith tie” a link to the Lost legacy post: ‘How Laissez Faire was Adam Smith?’ (here)

I am not familiar with Progressive Economics Forum, nor with the nuance in the word ‘progressive’ in the North America. Hence, I shall tread carefully and say nothing.

That particular post, which is from my new book, Adam Smith: the moral philosopher and his political economy, (in press Palgrave Macmillan, 2008) seems to have struck a chord across some other Blogs that have mentioned it and given a link to Lost Legacy (for which I am always grateful).

Putting more people in contact with Adam Smith’s actual legacy is the purpose of this Blog, as opposed to the purloined one (an example of the ‘bait-and-switch’ scam - using the name ‘Adam Smith’ to tempt you in and then substituting an erroneous version of his views).

The steady growth in traffic through Lost Legacy is encouraging. More readers visit year-on-year, and other economics Blogs are noticing its account of Adam Smith’s actual views.

Our biggest audience (60 per cent) is in North America, followed by the UK and Europe, with regular outposts in Russia, China, India, Japan, Brazil, Australia and Africa.

Thank you to all concerned.

Keep up the good work.
