Format: Paperback
Being called "the father of economics" is not without reason. Adam Smith demonstrated the essential principles in economics in his all-time classic "The Wealth of Nations" -- a book that changes the history of economic theory development. Read this book and you'll see the wisdom of this great old thinker, and you'll discover that economics is MUCH more than just "supply and demand". At the practical level, ask youself questions like "what is the real meaning of money?" and find answers in the book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The reason why I went back and bought this book along with "The Theory Of Moral Sentiments" by Adam Smith was to reset and go back to the basics. Re-reading these volumes basically reaffirmed long held knowledge and personal thinking that keeping it simple is better. These readings also revealed the "moral gap" in some of today's methods and the rashness with which thy are embraced. The unnecessary complexities of current economic model, fraught with wolves. Revisiting Smith's thinking is a sure panacea to the long overdue reboot of present day models. Argumentatively, these 17th century principles are not outdated. They are distorted or simply ignored. Hence, the gradual decline in societal ethos.

These volumes, to me, are a reference material. A store of knowledge and wisdom. They are excellent for anyone interested in the field of philosophy and economics.
