Statue of Adam Smith

Statue of Adam Smith

1 review of Statue of Adam Smith

The father of liberalism

In Parliament Square, the plaza on the Royal Mile (in the direction of the castle) you'll find St. Giles' Cathedral. You'll also find a large bronze statue in memory of the philosopher and economist Adam Smith, who was the father of liberalism and author of the book "The Wealth of Nations" which is the basis of the modern discipline of economics. Behind the statue, next to the Cathedral, you will inevitably see some street performers. I saw a harpist and pipers.
