The Wealth of Nations: The Economics Classic - A Selected Edition for the Contemporary Reader (Capstone Classics #6) (Hardcover)
THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOK ON MODERN ECONOMICS
The Wealth of Nations is an economics book like no other. First published in 1776, Adam Smith's groundbreaking theories provide a recipe for national prosperity that has not been bettered since. It assumes no prior knowledge of its subject, and over 200 years on, still provides valuable lessons on the fundamentals of economics.
This keepsake edition is a selected abridgement of all five books, and includes an Introduction by Tom Butler-Bowdon, drawing out lessons for the contemporary reader, a Foreword from Eamonn Butler, Director of the Adam Smith Institute, and a Preface from Dr. Razeen Sally of the London School of Economics.
Adam Smith is widely cited as the father of modern economics. He was a moral philosopher and key figure of the Scottish Enlightenment. Tom Butler-Bowdon is the author of five bestselling books on classic self-help and motivational writing. He has been described by USA Today as 'a true scholar of this type of literature'. His first book, 50 Self-Help Classics, won the 2004 Benjamin Franklin award. www.butler-bowdon.com
