A true classic!,
This review is from: An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (Kindle Edition)
I was fed up reading other books and newspaper articles where Adam Smith was quoted, such that I was compelled to read this.
Although the language used in the book is challenging, Adam Smith talks common sense. The concepts he discussed, for me, showed he was ahead of his time. Whilst he is often described as 'the father of economics', which I believe to be true, through his writing the reader gets a sense of the history and politics which existed in his time. I would suggest that you keep a
Dictionary to hand, and internet access, such as, Wikipedia, as some of the language is archaic, e.g. "Shewn" instead of "shown'"
Well worth reading if you would like to learn we're the principles of modern day capitalism originated from. A true classic.
