updates, May 2009[edit]

I've made a few additions and amendments to this page, such as adding the founders' links with the Conservative Party and a few more details on the Omega Project, and have moved and changed the paragraph regarding Adam Smith International. Details regarding AS International were previously uncited and had apparently been added by an employee of the organisation. The page is still a bit of a mess, admittedly. I think it's made it less POV-skewed but would appreciate any comment.--JETM (talk) 17:00, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

  • It looks better now, thanks. FYI, I copied parts concerning Douglas Mason's work from his obituary, and had forgotten to include the reference. Ohconfucius (talk) 03:42, 20 May 2009 (UTC)


This article reads like an advert for the ASI. It possibly needs re-writing. (talk) 14:43, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Just making a note of a few September 2012 refs that came up when I searched Adam Smith International government contracts in case someone else wants to add something before I get around to it. Obviously more research into recent years warranted.
The managing director of the London-based development consultancy Adam Smith International (ASI), which gets most of its income from DFID, paid himself a salary and dividends totalling almost £1.3million in 2010...Adam Smith International — which grew out of, but is now not related to, the Right-wing think-tank, the Adam Smith Institute — was paid £37million by DFID last year to promote the free market in the Third World. Its total turnover that year was £53.6million, with profits of £5million, up 10 per cent on 2010.
So FYI til and if get around to it. CarolMooreDC 17:59, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
