SUMMARY:

Considered the most celebrated classic on Economics ever written, The Wealth of Nations was penned by the preeminent scholar of the eighteenth century - the great Adam Smith. First published during the Scottish Enlightenment in 1776, The Wealth of Nations has changed the way the world looks at economics. Many scholars have been heavily influenced by this classic, as well as organizations and governments. Alexander Hamilton was influenced by Smith's masterpiece when he countered with his Report on Manufacturers. Some of the other authors that were affected by The Wealth of Nations include Ludwig von Mises, Alexsandr Pushkin, Thomas Malthus, and David Ricardo. Now widely studied in college classrooms around the world, the themes first promoted by The Wealth of Nations have remained timeless and crucial to the study to the study of economics. Smith's theory that a nation's wealth is generated by its gross national product still holds today. His classic helped influence governments to focus on real economic growth instead of building up their stores of silver and gold. This is Volume 2 of a 2-volume set.

SUMMARY:

An easier-to read, moderately abridged, current language version of the 1776 classic. Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations is the great pioneering study of economic growth and performance. When first published in 1776, the factory-based Industrial Revolution was only just getting underway. However, there had been steadily rising production and incomes in Britain, the North American colonies, Holland and other countries since at least the late 17th century. Smith uses basic theory, observation and documentary sources to analyze the nature and causes of economic advancement in general. The book is lengthy and wide-ranging. It examines the contributions to production of labour, land and capital. It explains the economic importance of large buoyant markets and industrial specialization. It also shows that national wealth does not depend on economic factors alone. For example, the favourableness or otherwise of the political-legal environment for industry and commerce is everywhere a major influence on national prosperity. This is a moderately abridged current language version of the book – essentially translating the work into modern English to improve its readability and understandability. The translation is substantive but retains literalness and original word order and grammar as far as possible.

SUMMARY:

The book presents estimates of total wealth for nearly 120 countries, using economic theory to decompose the wealth of a nation into its component pieces: produced capital, natural resources and human resources. The wealth estimates provide a unique opportunity to look at economic management from a broader and comprehensive perspective. The book's basic tenet is that economic development can be conceived as a process of portfolio management, so that sustainability becomes an integral part of economic policy making. The rigorous analysis, presented in accessible format, tackles issues such as g.
