An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes
Of the Wealth of Nations
By Adam Smith, L.L.D. F.R.S
With a Memoir of The Author’s Life
"The Wealth of Nations is one of the world's most important books. It did for economics what Newton did for physics and Darwin did for biology. Generally referred to by its shortened title The Wealth of Nations, is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. First published in 1776, the book offers one of the world's first collected descriptions of what builds nations' wealth, and is today a fundamental work in classical economics. By reflecting upon the economics at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the book touches upon such broad topics as the division of labour, productivity, and free markets”.
