Tribute to ‘father of economics’
THE world’s first public monument to economist Adam Smith, often referred to as the father of modern economics, was unveiled yesterday.
The monument, which takes the form of a 10ft bronze statue on a massive stone plinth, stands on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile — right in the heart of Scotland’s capital, where Adam Smith worked and died.
The statue was created by Alexander Stoddart, Scotland’s leading monumental sculptor.
