Yet Smith also recognised that different institutional arrangements were generated in differing countries. 3:404–5). In like manner, the congruence that Cropsey saw between an advancing capitalism and an advancing freedom could not be found so neatly portrayed in Smith’s writing. Smith claimed, for example, that France was “farther advanced in arts and manufactures of every kind than England” (1762–76, 512).

On this interpretation, Holland could be held up as Smith’s benchmark of the republican and commercial polity (65).
