Adam Smith Correctly Names Economic System

From Powerline:
Marx has not exactly proved a sage prophet, but his terminology has triumphed. He succeeded in giving capitalism its name. Far preferable is Adam Smith's designation of free enterprise as "the system of natural liberty."
Bravo, Adam Smith! Now, if only his understanding of the link between freedom and prosperity were more widely appreciated today.
