4 The durability of this approach is evident in the four-volume collection edited by John C. Wood (1984) which assembles 150 articles repre- senting some ninety years of commentary on Smith. The assumption that "Adam Smith" is pre- eminently an economist speakin to issues broadly similar to those covered in mo%ern economics is also exemplified by the sixteen essays in Part I1 of the bicentenary volume edited by Andrew Skinner and Thomas Wilson (1975).

Sam Hollander also figures in the other chapter that is devoted toexploring an apparent/actual contradiction in Adam Smith'sarguments, namely that by Glenn Hueckel, entitled '"In theheat of writing": polemics and the "error" of Adam Smithin the matter of the corn bounty'; combatant in a fierce cornbounty debate with Ted Sieper at the La Trobe University HETSAconference in 1985, Hollander is quoted in this chapter as asking'how is it that so "sophisticated" an economist as Smithseems to have "neglected all the lessons that he himself had triedto expound" when he took up the question of the corn bounty?'For whereas Adam Smith in general argued that establishing a bounty on acommodity would, by decreasing its foreign price and thereby increasingthe demand for it, cause a misallocation of resources, he made anexception in the case of corn. Like several other contributors to thisbook, Hueckel draws attention to the fact that the tone of The Wealth ofNations, far from being magisterial as some now see it, was mostlypolemical, as Adam Smith himself on occasion admitted. Hueckel'sexplanation of Adam Smith's surprising stance on the corn bounty isthat the motive was polemical, specifically to disprove the mercantilistcontention that when an increase in the wealth of a country induces aninflow of gold and silver, 'the money price of food rises inresponse to this growth-induced inflow of specie'; Adam Smithattempted to refute this contention by arguing that on the contrary anincrease in the wealth of a country will increase the demand fornon-basic commodities, including gold and silver, relative to that ofthe basic commodity corn, whose money price would hence fall. Ondiscovering that this last was not the case during the eighteenthcentury, Adam Smith allotted 'blame' inter alia to the bountyon corn, established in 1689. Further, to counter the argument that byencouraging production of corn the bounty safeguarded the countryagainst years of dearth, Adam Smith reasoned that an increase in thenominal price of corn consequent on the bounty would lead to a raisingof the money wage rate, and thereby to a raising of all prices, leavingthe real price of corn, and hence the incentive to produce it,unchanged. This contribution by Hueckel to the corn bounty debate willno doubt issue in further controversy.
