Right from examining the division of labour, the origin and use of money, and the division of stock, to the rise and progress of cities and towns after the fall of the Roman Empire, the systems of political economy, and the taxes on various private revenues, Adam Smith' s The Wealth of Nations provides an extensive assessment of the creation of a nation' s wealth. Laying the foundation of classical political economy, this magnum opus is considered one of the best non-fiction books of all time. More than two centuries after its first publication in 1776, The Wealth of Nations continues to remain as influential as ever."

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.

An easier-to read, moderately abridged, current language version of the 1776 classic. Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations is the great pioneering study of economic growth and performance. When first published in 1776, the factory-based Industrial Revolution was only just getting underway. However, there had been steadily rising production and incomes in Britain, the North American colonies, Holland and other countries since at least the late 17th century. Smith uses basic theory, observation and documentary sources to analyze the nature and causes of economic advancement in general. The book is lengthy and wide-ranging. It examines the contributions to production of labour, land and capital. It explains the economic importance of large buoyant markets and industrial specialization. It also shows that national wealth does not depend on economic factors alone. For example, the favourableness or otherwise of the political-legal environment for industry and commerce is everywhere a major influence on national prosperity. This is a moderately abridged current language version of the book – essentially translating the work into modern English to improve its readability and understandability. The translation is substantive but retains literalness and original word order and grammar as far as possible.

In addressing the nature and causes of the wealth of nations, Adam Smith made one of the most potent contributions to subsequent ideological history. In the west since the early nineteenth century he has been the patron saint of homo economicus. More recently, successive British governments have invoked his policy recommendations of free trade and laissez-faire to aid their extension of privatization and market effectiveness into areas such as health and education. Smith, however, not only viewed merchants and manufacturers with deep suspicion, but also tempered his celebration of a self-regulating market with a darker vision of the dehumanizing potential of a profit-oriented society. He did not write an economics textbook, but rather a panoramic narrative about the struggle for individual liberty and general prosperity in history, a subject he shared with other writers of the Enlightenment.

* 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!
