This is Smith’s starting point of a surplus of some kinds of produce. The market price then falls below the natural price. In Smith’s equilibrium theory of natural price, the supply will be decreased through the shift of factors of production out of such an industry. At the same time, the surplus of such a commodity beyond domestic demand can also be exported. But there is also the ‘productivity’ aspect of Smith’s theory of international trade. 6 The final equilibrium outcome thus depends on what happens to productivity during the disequilibrium process of adjustment, since the equilibrium price achieved will be determined by changes in productivity introduced during the disequilibrium process of adjustment.

On 4 June 1767, William Rouet, who had apparently served as Steuart’s publication agent (Longman Archive, MS 1393/26/2c), informed the author that his book met with ‘universal approbation’ and that 370 copies had already been sold (quoted in Skinner’s Introduction to Steuart 1998: li). Had that rate of sales continued, the first edition would have sold out in a few months, and a second edition would surely have appeared very soon afterwards.
