Allin and others may be interested in Emma Rothschild's severe
criticism of Playfair's hostile annotations to Smith's Wealth of
Nations and of his reactionary defense of the apprenticeship system
criticized by Smith in the name of universal education.  See her
Economic Sentiments. I am just beginning to read Dogan's book on
Smith, and one immediately finds at work an erudite and profound
philosophical mind. This is a book I am going to enjoy.
