Right in the middle of the Royal Mile in Edinburgh is this monument.

It’s a statue of Scottish economist Adam Smith, also known as the father of capitalism.

I remember studying him and his “invisible hand” many years ago when I enrolled in political economy for a semester.

Right in the middle of a busy street lined with tourist shops and shoppers, was a statue of this man who started it all.

  1. Oh, I’d love to visit Scotland! I wonder if the propensity to tear down monuments is as strong in the UK as it is in the U.S. lately. I dare say Adam Smith would probably be on his head here.
