Development Poll

AS asked me the other day if I agree with this Adam Smith quote: 
"little else is requisite to carry a state to the highest degree of opulence from the lowest barbarism, but peace, easy taxes, and a tolerable administration of justice; all the rest being brought about by the natural course of things"
A few years ago I would probably have dismissed this neoliberal nonsense, but now I'm not so sure. I think I actually might agree.

Let me know what you think in the box on the right, or sound off in the comments if you have a better answer!
