Hey ca thro
Adam Smith published ‘The Wealth Of Nations’ on March 9, 1776, a book whose impact was immediate and influence long lasting. Best read alongside the Glasgow University professor’s treatise on good conduct, fairness and justice, ‘The Moral Sentiments’, it remains a classic of economic theory. Today’s poem is in praise of Smith’s native Fife, though its list of towns does not include his hometown of Kirkcaldy. The eminent philosopher and social theorist is buried in the graveyard of Canongate Kirk, not far from the resting place of the poet Robert Fergusson.
