An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations by Adam Smith ( Book )
41 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1776, the year in which the American Revolution officially began, Smith's Wealth of Nations sparked a revolution of its own. In it Smith analyzes the major elements of political economy, from market pricing and the division of labor to monetary, tax, trade, and other government policies that affect economic behavior. Throughout he offers seminal arguments for free trade, free markets, and limited government. Criticizing mercantilists who sought to use the state to increase their nations' supply of precious metals, Smith points out that a nation's wealth should be measured by the well-being of its people. Prosperity in turn requires voluntary exchange of goods in a peaceful, well-ordered market. How to establish and maintain such markets? For Smith the answer lay in man's social instincts, which government may encourage by upholding social standards of decency, honesty, and virtue, but which government undermines when it unduly interferes with the intrinsically private functions of production and exchange. Social and economic order arise from the natural desires to better one's (and one's family's) lot and to gain the praise and avoid the censure of one's neighbors and business associates. Individuals behave decently and honestly because it gives them a clear conscience as well as the good reputation necessary for public approbation and sustained, profitable business relations

Essays on Adam Smith by Andrew S Skinner ( Book )
13 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume is published in conjunction with a new edition of all the works of Adam Smith, commissioned by the University of Glasgow to celebrate the bicentenary of The Wealth of Nations. As a part of the celebrations, it was also felt appropriate to publish a series of essays by contemporary students of Smith which would cover the main areas of his work, as distinct from simply concentrating on the economics. To this end, the first part is mainly concerned with the broadly philosophical and political aspects of Smith's contribution, the second, with the subject matter (by no means entirely economic) of The Wealth of Nations itself

The wealth of nations by Adam Smith ( Book )
8 editions published between 1979 and 2003 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With this landmark treatise on political economy, Adam Smith paved the way for modern capitalism, arguing that a truly free market -- fired by competition yet guided as if by an 'invisible hand' to ensure justice and equality -- was the engine of a fair and productive society. Books I-III of The Wealth of Nations examine the 'division of labour' as the key to economic growth, by ensuring the interdependence of individuals within society. They also cover the origins of money and the importance of wages, profit, rent and stocks. Smith's work laid the foundations of economic theory in general and 'classical' economics in particular, but the real sophistication of his analysis derives from the fact that it also encompasses a combination of ethics, philosophy and history to create a vast panorama of society. This edition contains an analytical introduction offering an in-depth discussion of Smith as an economist and social scientist, as well as a preface, further reading and explanatory notes. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
