The foundation for all modern economic thought and political economy, The Wealth of Nations is the magnum opus of Scottish economist Adam Smith, who introduces the world to the very idea of economics and capitalism in the modern sense of the words. Smith details his argument in five books: Book I. Of the Causes of Improvement in the Productive Power of LabourBook II. Of the Nature, Accumulation, and Employment of Stock IntroductionBook III. Of the Different Progress of Opulence in Different NationsBook IV. Of Systems of Political EconomyBook V. Of the Revenue of the Sovereign or CommonwealthTaken together, these books form a giant leap forward in the field of economics. A product of the "Age of Enlightenment," The Wealth of Nations is a must for all who wish to gain a better understanding of the principles upon which all modern capitalistic economies have been founded and the process of wealth creation that is engendered by those principles.… (més)

Long, boring, and dated. This book was clearly written for Smith's contemporaries, and consequently it consists of hardly anything but useless information. ( )

A great book, but not for everyone. Amazing insights which are still as valid today as 1775 when the book was written.

Very detailed, great analysis and I really learned a lot from this book. Hard to read in sections, as it is written in very verbose, antiquated English.

I would recommend it if you are interested in Economics and want to gain a perspective from first principles. ( )

Many of the examples are dated, yet I am astonished at how closely what he describes matches what goes on today. The one that really surprised me was his description of what we now call arbitrage. He wrote this at a time when simultaneous trading in different markets was impractical if not impossible.

"The idea of the possibility of multiplying paper money to almost any extent was the real foundation of what is called the Mississippi scheme, the most extravagant project, both of banking and stock-jobbing, that perhaps the world ever saw." (Page 204 of 619)

Bounties (encouragement of exportation) create a double taxation on the people. The principal benefit is to the importers and exporters. It also tends to devalue the currency and make the effects of lean years more severe. Tariffs often don't help those they are intended to help, and always hurt the welfare of the general public.

There is a lot about the economics of colonies, and more on monopolies being detrimental to the society. I am enjoying his comments about the state of various European and New World economies. One of the notable observations is that in the New World they get greater value from developing the land than from manufacturing because of the labor shortage caused by the ready availability of free or cheap land.

He went on at great length on various means of funding roads, and joint stock companies compared with private charters.

I was continually amazed at the breadth of material that he covered. He compared Greek, Roman, and European educational methods, with especially attention to who should pay for it; discussing the advantages and disadvantages of various means of funding education.

I was surprised to find quite a few pages describing the rise of Lutheran and Calvinistic doctrine. The established churches had grown (fat and lazy) and were not able to defend themselves against the upstarts, even though those in the established churches were better educated.

That last part covered a multitude of taxation schemes & analyzed their relative abilities to retard the economy.

I am not especially well versed in economics, so I had been looking forward to reading this classic text. I’m afraid I lasted only about a hundred pages. The content is all good and well argued, but Smith is not Gibbon (coincidentally, I had a distant cousin whose maiden name was Smyth and married a man whose name was Gibbon) and without the delights of Gibbon’s style, the detailed prose was a bit wearing, especially given my general state of mind, driven by the current situation; I am looking for comfort reading, not education at the moment. Some day I shall invest in a nice readable Economics 101 text book and educate myself properly in the dismal science, which I guess may also have moved on a bit since the eighteenth century. ( )

The annual labour of every nation is the fund which originally supplies it with all the necessaries and conveniences of life which it annually consumes, and which consist always either in the immediate produce of that labour, or in what is purchased with that produce from other nations.

It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities but of their advantages.
The real price of everything, what everything really costs to the man who wants to acquire it, is the toil and trouble of acquiring it.
Labor...is the only universal, as well as the only accurate measure of value, or the only standard by which we can compare the values of different commodities at all times and at all places.
The property which every man has is his own labor, as it is the original foundation of all other property, so it is the most sacred and inviolable.
The interest of the dealers...in any particular branch of trade or manufactures is always in some respects different from, and even opposite to, that of the public.
