I'm not offended at all. I am neither liberal nor conservative as well.
My opinion of Adam Smith's book is that is is somewhat less than thorough on the topics of "Hands-off" economics and interventionist economics, but he does a decent job of pointing out that work and efficiencies in the shops that produce goods are the cause of a nation's economy. He does go a bit too far in a few instances to make a point that could have been made more succinctly, although for the most part his logical flow does help support his points. His plea for governments to not interfere with business is an opinion held almost universally by business owners - ask any beekeeper. We all do it differently than each other. as we see fit for our location, setup. unique local situation, etc. Other than providing for research, information. and protecting us from theft, illegal importing / economic dumping / etc., there is not much that a government can do that an astute local beekeeper can do better.
