New Adam Smith Blog Announced

A new Adam Smith blog has joined Internet discussions, The Sustainable Adam Smith (HERE):

It is authored by Nils M. Langenborg, gMBA who states that his goal in the Blog is “Through increased knowledge of Adam Smith’s works, we will educate people, government and business to the totality of his thinking and thereby balance out its effects on our world. Smith was not a capitalist, and our goal is to showcase his complete thinking on the interaction between consumers, business and government.”

Follow the link and note how his take on the IH metaphor is a welcome change from those who endlessly repeat the modern myth of Smith’s supposed meaning when he used the metaphor of ‘an invisible hand’.

Sustainable Adam Smith is a welcome addition to the debate on Adam Smith and his relevance today - though I have some reservations about aspects of Nil’s analysis (semi-allies are better than none), it brings a fresh approach to modern appreciation of Smith’s work.
