The Myth of Adam Smith
E. Elgar Pub., 1 jan. 1998 - 227 pagina's
'This book must surely be read by all Smith scholars. Rashid has cast a sharp, noteful eye over a wide range of Smith's intellectual activities and attributes. He has marshalled a great amount of critical commentary by Smith's contemporaries and near contemporaries. He has done so with learning and intellectual discipline. He has achieved controversy without ever contraversialising. Henceforth, in any discussion of Smith, the Smith scholar's round of activity must include "looking up Rashid".' - William Coleman, History of Economics Review 'For every economist who has ever idolized Adam Smith or wished they could be more like him, Salim Rashid's the Myth of Adam Smith is the valuable antidote. Rashid is unusual among economists in that he really does not care much for Smith. In this well-researched book, Rashid presents a strong case against what he regards as Smith's overblown reputation. . . . Rashid's book is both entertaining and informative.' - Spencer J. Pack, Southern Economic Journal This book presents a controversial account of the work of Adam Smith, challenging prevailing orthodox thought on Smith's contribution to economics. It argues that Smith's fame as an economic analyst and economic historian is undeserved.
