Better than a Nobel

The Independent reports:
The Governor of the Bank of England, Mervyn King, has announced that a portrait of Adam Smith will feature on a redesigned £20 banknote, to come into circulation next year.
The news comes under this headline:
The Big Question: Who was Adam Smith, and does he deserve to be on our banknotes?
