Yes, he is writing about Adam Smith. And things are happening:
Recently has come the news that some devoted intellectual followers of the great man plan to honour him with a statueMr Kerevan is referring to the plans made by the Adam Smith Institute for the erection of a Smith statue on the Royal Mile.

Wondering why proper recognition of Smith has taken so long, Mr Kerevan suggests:
Again, the lack of recognition may be due to a subtle left-wing bias against what he is presumed to have stood for - a bias on the part of Edinburgh councillors and even the Church of Scotland, where they still remember Mrs Thatcher’s sermon on Smith at the 1988 General Assembly.I have no doubt that is correct. Perhaps the new statue will encourage Edinburgh folk - even councillors - to read the works of the great economist and Scotsman.
