George Jerome Waldo Goodman (born August 10, 1930) is an American economist, author, and broadcast economics commentator, best known by his pseudonym Adam Smith (which intentionally evokes the 18th century Scottish economist of the same name). He also writes fiction under the name "George Goodman."
- "One of the things Goodman found was that he could see all "the basic molecules of the universe... all the component parts, little building blocks of DNA." He conscientiously drew a picture of what he thought was DNA, but it turned out to be a plastic monomer marketed by Dupont called Delrin. That didn't dampen Goodman's amazement, however, because up until taking the LSD he had had a banker's knowledge of molecules and chemical notation, which is to say he knew absolutely nothing about them."
