For one very rich man there must be at least five hundred poor, and the affluence of the few supposes the indigence of the many. The affluence of the rich excites the indignation of the poor, who are often both driven by want, and prompted by envy, to invade his possessions.” ― Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations The Wealth of Nations has influenced economists, politicians and general though for centuries and is an essential look at the nature of wealth and the causes of inequality under a capitalistic system.

Knowledge and the Wealth of Nations A Story of Economic Discovery Book Description:

"What The Double Helix did for biology, David Warsh's Knowledge and the Wealth of Nations does for economics." —Boston Globe A stimulating and inviting tour of modern economics centered on the story of one of its most important breakthroughs. In 1980, the twenty-four-year-old graduate student Paul Romer tackled one of the oldest puzzles in economics. Eight years later he solved it. This book tells the story of what has come to be called the new growth theory: the paradox identified by Adam Smith more than two hundred years earlier, its disappearance and occasional resurfacing in the nineteenth century, the development of new technical tools in the twentieth century, and finally the student who could see further than his teachers. Fascinating in its own right, new growth theory helps to explain dominant first-mover firms like IBM or Microsoft, underscores the value of intellectual property, and provides essential advice to those concerned with the expansion of the economy. Like James Gleick's Chaos or Brian Greene's The Elegant Universe, this revealing book takes us to the frontlines of scientific research; not since Robert Heilbroner's classic work The Worldly Philosophers have we had as attractive a glimpse of the essential science of economics.

H. Campbell and A. S. Skinner • Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide

SUMMARY The Wealth Of Nations Book 1 And 2 By Adam Smith Book Description:

* Our summary is short, simple and pragmatic. It allows you to have the essential ideas of a big book in less than 30 minutes. By reading this summary, you will discover the founding principles of political economy according to Adam Smith. You will also discover : that work is the source of a nation's wealth; that the division of labor enables productivity, the source of economic growth; that the true value of a commodity lies in the labor it contains; that work for personal interest contributes to the natural balance of the market; that the accumulation of capital is a necessary precondition for the division of labor. When Adam Smith, the Scottish economist and philosopher, wrote Wealth of Nations (1776), he was the first to define the principles of economic growth. This famous five-book work presented the major founding themes of political economy. The latter, which become more understandable if placed in the context of the 18th century, were opposed to the mercantilist thinking of the time. Adam Smith's theories were innovative in the history of economics. They served as a basis for reflection for generations of famous economists after him, and his seminal work represents the beginning of modern economics. Are you ready to understand the mechanisms of these theories? *Buy now the summary of this book for the modest price of a cup of coffee!

The Wealth of Nations Books 1 3 Complete and Unabridged Book Description:

An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist Adam Smith. It is a clearly written account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, as well as a rhetorical piece written for the generally educated individual of the 18th century - advocating a free market economy as more productive and more beneficial to society. The work is credited as a watershed in history and economics due to its comprehensive, largely accurate characterization of economic mechanisms that survive in modern economics; and also for its effective use of rhetorical technique, including structuring the work to contrast real world examples of free and fettered markets.
