An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations by Adam Smith( Book )

79 editions published between 1928 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,265 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
Adam Smith by R. H Campbell( Book )

47 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conventional received opinion of Adam Smith as an isolated figure, the founder of ' modern' economics, is thoroughly mistaken and misleading. This is the central premise of this book, first published in 1988, in which the author argues that by placing Smith' s work in its historical context, we discover profound continuities between Smith' s work and that of his predecessors, and his contemporaries. The effect is to re-orientate our perception of Smith and his achievement. No longer the single-handed champion of free markets
The wealth of nations by Adam Smith( Book )

46 editions published between 1970 and 2003 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on Adam Smith by Andrew S Skinner( Book )

14 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and Undetermined and held by 803 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
