    Abstract

    Economists of virtually all schools of thought regard Adam Smith sympathetically. This article explores Adam Smith's authoritarian side, showing the close connection between Smith's notion of appropriate behavior and the prevailing economic organization. This article explores how this dimension of Smith's pre-analytic vision shaped his writings.
