Abstract:

An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations is the foundation of classical economics, and it has influenced a broad range of thinkers. Smith stresses the importance of the division of labor to economic progress. He criticizes the arguments for economic planning and offers a detailed theoretical and historical case for free trade. The second part covers some major themes in The wealth of nations, a lengthy and complex book. These include the division of labor, the idea of an unplanned social order (the famous "invisible hand"), Adam Smith's theory of economic value and its influence on later thinkers, and Smith's defense of free trade. Some of Smith's arguments are difficult to follow for the modern reader. The third and fourth parts explain Smith's major arguments in the order they appear in The Wealth of Nations, while providing the background necessary for comprehension.
