Mr. Smith's articles, which critique the status quo, had influence from Braudel's historical account of early capitalism. Smith's economic works stress the value and efficacy of decentralizing power and wealth, the individual's power of self-determination and the value of community, which in his view has been diminished by the state.

Mr. Smith's first published work, Weblogs & New Media: Marketing in Crisis, appeared in 2008.
