Write a customer review. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I am an avid reader and I have to say, this is the greatest book I've ever read. This book holds the keys to national prosperity. It's almost unfathomable to me that one book can teach so much. You will learn about what an economy is, trade, wages, banking, monetary policy, taxes, public debts, agriculture, history, the list goes on and on.
This book is must-read. Now a review of this specific edition: The font is quite small which makes it hard to read. This is especially a consideration for a page book. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I have read Wealth of Nations a couple of times and decided to download a copy to my phone so I can have it on hand always.

Saying that, I still feel if you want to know how we the middle class got in such a financial quandary nowadays, I say go back to the best tutorial ever written, so far. Adam Smith's insight into the business man's mind is as point on today as it was in the 's. He warned us then, what is happening now; fiat money, collusion, government favoritism, etc. Problem is, people would have to pick up a book and read about the darker side of the business world and the effect it has on the 'consumer', 'citizen', and 'environment'.
As Smith says, "I have never known much good done by those who affected to trade for the public good. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith is truly an epic classic in our time.
An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations
Especially in the part that he discusses Silver, etc. Some of the ideas are ones that we've become very familiar with in our modern lives, not only in the field of economics, but also in politics, religion, law, and finance. Particularly interesting were his thesis on "Division of Labor" page 15 , rules of market place based on self interest page , description of banking crisis page , free trade page , with the famous "invisible hand" , property rights page , description of Founding Fathers in US page , free market principle page , rule of law page , , role of government page , human nature and incentives page , freedom of religion page , progressive tax system page , government debt page , currency devaluation page Rules of the market place, rule of law, property rights, freedom of religion comes to mind.
I would recommend it to anyone who has the will and time to peruse this superb volume. This book, written in s, is outdated and appropriately so. The use of the language can be arcane at times, the examples likewise.
The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith
At times I could read a passage over ad nausium, yet it would be vex me all the same. And it verbosity is compared to modern standards, on another level. However, as you read you it will begin to be revealed why it has received so much approbation. It covers many of the topics that are, nowadays, considered fundamental constitutes of classical economics, and indeed many news books are probably much better suited for teaching about basic economics, but as relic of the past and for its tremendous influence i give it five stars.
One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. It's Wealth of Nations. There's nothing to critique about the book in this paltry review that all shed worthwhile light on the text itself that hasn't been more intelligently and fully examined over the last few hundred years by thousands of economists and thinkers around the world. Most of these free Kindle books leave a lot to be desired and this is no different.
Since it wasn't translated we don't have to argue over the quality of the interpretation, however it is a dense tome and I find these require a little more navigation for full digestion. A lot of flipping back and forth, checking out the index, notes, table of contents, previous chapters, etc. And all of this is a bit challenging to do on the Kindle.
Nevertheless, the text seems to fine. So if you want to casually explore the thoughts of Smith on a less than ideal platform, here you go. As a scholar, I'd prefer a hard copy. This text by Adam Smith summarizes capitalism in it's purest sense. How markets move, why they move, and thought experiments on how variables affect the outcomes. It's famous for a reason. It's a bit hard to get through in some parts, but this is a good version of the text for students. Pick it up and let your life be changed.
This is a must read for anyone interested in the creation of wealth. This revision had me spellbound taking me on a time warp trip with his research into a historical past before the time of writing. I could happily re-read from page one, just to be sure no small morsel was overlooked. One person found this helpful. One star only because the book was received damaged. The front page was torn at the spine - most of the way. For the price it is not worth returning, so I will get some glue and try to glue it back together.
