Freeman Essay #146: “It Just Ain’t So!”

I thought that I’d completed the full archiving here at Cafe Hayek of all of my writings for The Freeman, but I was mistaken. Available here is a short essay of mine in the August 1998 Freeman; it kicked off what became for a time a regular Freeman series (with different authors) titled “It Just Ain’t So!.” Specifically, my short essay here is a defense of Adam Smith against a misreading of him that appeared in the March 1998 edition of the Atlantic by Jonathan Schlefer. You can read my essay beneath the fold.
