Summary:
The Rule of the Rich provides a historical account of Adam Smith's case for free enterprise. By locating Smith's work within the context of eighteenth-century aristocratic society, this book shows that his defense of the free market system issued not from any devotion to individual liberty, but from his aristocratic conviction that the passion for private gain undermines the integrity of political authority.
