Visiting Adam Smith

I don't make a habit of hanging around churchyards in winter but on a recent trip to Bath I saw the memorial stone to Thomas Malthus in the Abbey. In Edinburgh for Hogmanay, a short detour to the Canongate Kirk brought me to the gravestone of Adam Smith (above). It could be a new form of tourism, visiting the burial places of the great economists.
