Update on the "Great Mind Fallacy"
The Forbes editorial I wrote is based on a paper I just had published in Social Philosophy and Policy entitled "Adam Smith and the Great Mind Fallacy." For those interested in the more detailed argument, the paper is available here.
Most issues of SP&P are very good; this one (vol. 27, issue 1, winter 2010) is as well. It collects several excellent papers from a distinguished group of scholars all addressing the general topic of "ownership and justice." I highly recommend the other papers as well.
[A hat tip and thank-you goes to Mark D. White, who alerted me (and others) to the appearance of the paper and this issue of SP&P on his blog, Economics and Ethics.]
