"An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (generally referred to by the short title The Wealth of Nations) is the masterpiece of the Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. It was first published in 1776. It is an 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 book is often considered to have laid the basic groundwork for modern economic theory"--Wikipedia

Lectures on jurisprudence by Adam Smith( Book )

61 editions published between 1976 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smith's Lectures on Jurisprudence, originally delivered at the University of Glasgow in 1762-1763, present his "theory of the rules by which civil government ought to be directed." The chief purpose of government, according to Smith, is to preserve justice; and "the object of justice is security from injury." The state must protect the individual's right to his person, property, reputation, and social relations. Building on his Theory of Moral Sentiments, Smith argues that the state must act as an impartial spectator, judging when an individual has been injured. The state must then design and apply civil and criminal laws to prevent further injuries and punish transgressors. Laws are also the means by which the state promotes public prosperity. Thus, regulations concerning trade, commerce, and production must be crafted so as to encourage rather than interfere with our productive capacities

Adam Smith's The wealth of nations : a modern-day interpretation of an economic classic by Karen McCreadie( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations' was the first comprehensive treatment of political economy. Published in 1776, 'The Wealth of Nations' was originally released for a very specific audience; the British Parliament, setting clearly defined arguments for peace and co-operation with their troublesome colonials across the Atlantic. Today it is considered one of the most famous books ever written. Here, Smith's text is interpreted for the modern day world of finance, business and economics. Karen McCreadie's interpretation is not a substitute for the original; its purpose is simply to illustrate the timeless nature of Smith's insights by bringing them to life through 21st century examples. Given the state of our economy this brilliant interpretation couldn't be more timely."--Resource description page
