Rashid on Adam Smith: In Need of Proof
Salim Rashid (1990) purports to have established some facts about Adam Smith's scholarship, significant among which are (a) Smith's plagiarism, (b) the poor quality of Smith's arguments or ideas compared with those of his predecessors or contemporaries, and (c) Smith's inconsistent arguments regarding laissez faire. Alas, Rashid's case is faulty, as well as often misleading and vexatious. This comment is an attempt to draw the requisite evidence from Rashid, if he indeed has such evidence, to back up his case, and to advance the scholarship on Smith in general.
