Can you explain this comment? While the disciplines are distinct, In pop-sci articles it's not uncommon to hear from both.

While I agree with the bulk of what the author's saying here, this struck me as an unfair statement:

>Now it just so happens that within the past decade or so the United States has, in effect, run two experiments — one in Iraq, the other in Libya — to test whether the theory of spontaneous order works out as the libertarian tradition would predict.

That wasn't an experiment in spontaneous order as described by Smith or the 'libertarian tradition.' It was an experiment in what happens when a power vacuum is suddenly created in a volatile political environment.
