It is well-known that Adam Smith justified the ownership of great property by the labour of the owner or his ancestors in acquiring it, which is a kind of merit. But he did not ascribe status to the worth of the person, or of his/her ancestors. Men were born equal: only environment and education gave rise to differences (of wealth and welfare deriving from status).
