"Adam Smith's enormous authority resides, in the end, in the same property that we discover in Marx: not in any ideology, but in an effort to see to the bottom of things."
--Robert L. Heilbroner
From the Trade Paperback edition.
ADAM SMITH was born in a small village in Kirkcaldy, Scotland in 1723. He entered the University of Glasgow at age fourteen, and later attended Balliol College at Oxford. After lecturing for a period, he held several teaching positions at Glasgow University. His greatest achievement was writing The Wealth of Nations (1776), a five-book series that sought to expose the true causes of prosperity, and installed him as the father of contemporary economic thought. He died in Edinburgh on July 19, 1790.
Dear Lord! Where did the publisher find such a small font! I just got new glasses and still could barely it.Published on April 23, 2013 by R.H.
If you are poor, you probably don't want to use your money to buy a book about wealth of nations. Otherwise, Adam seems to know what he's talking about.Published on February 20, 2013 by Jean-Claude Van Damme
I was unable to read the book because the print in the book was very small.
Very disappointed but will look for a different version or publisher.
