An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations

by Adam Smith

Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations should be required reading for anyone interested in economics, history and politics.

Smith's arguments about the role of government and the reasons wealthy nations are wealthly

Wealth of Nations is one of those rare books that is still relevant over 200 years after it was published (in 1776) and will still be relevant 200 years from now.

Many people mistakenly think Smith favoured laissez-faire capitalism. He didn't. Read it for yourself and discover what Smith really advocated. His arguments still resonate across the centuries.
