Today I ran into a new word, redivivus. It was in the following sentence dealing with economists, “But he was not simply Adam Smith redivivus.”

By the way, Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations is on the Carp 500, since everyone is thinking about economics right now. I would also point you to Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell for a good timely Carp read.
