The One Adam Smith Nonproblem

Summary:
I argue (with zero originality) that there is only one Adam Smith. This reprises arguments made by Dan Klein, James Otteson, Russ Roberts, Vernon Smith, and Bart Wilson, among others. But I have tried to make the argument in a way that is concise and accessible. Which means, of course, that I may just have it wrong. YOU decide!

Munger has made education a centerpiece of his gubernatorial campaign, saying that allowing more charter schools is the first thing he would do: "Rich people have choices now. I want everyone to have a choice." He would give $1,500 education vouchers to low-income students in the poorest 40 counties of North Carolina; since most would stay in public school, this would have the effect of increasing aid to poor schools.
