Some people are just too literal.
Of course the problems today are rather different from the days of Adam Smith.
There was no “planned obsolescence” going on continuously when The Wealth of Nations was published. Adam Smith didn’t have to worry about children of his day being brainwashed with Freudian psychology via television.
Now we must wonder if the Invisible Hand has been chopped off.
Try finding an economist who can supply you with the statistics on how much Americans have lost on the depreciation of automobiles every year since the Moon landing. Adam Smith didn’t have to think about that either.
