    Description

    An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is one of the most important and influential works ever published on economic theory and is the foundation of classical economics. In it, Adam Smith stresses the importance of the division of labor to economic progress. He criticizes the arguments for economic planning and offers a detailed theoretical and historical case for free trade.

    In this masterpiece of the 18th-century Scottish Enlightenment, Smith develops a theory of social order arising from the unintended consequences of self-interested behavior. This self-regulating system of the free market, Smith contends, protects consumers from entrenched special interests and is usually harmed by government intervention.

    Far more than just a work on economic theory, The Wealth of Nations also contains Smith’s views on philosophy, history, and political theory.

    This program discusses Adam Smith’s general approach to philosophy and how The Wealth of Nations fits into that approach. It also explains Smith’s major arguments and themes. Smith’s sometimes difficult discourse is presented with the background information necessary for its comprehension.

    The Giants of Political Thought series is an easy and entertaining way to broaden your mind and your awareness of great ideas.

    Frustrating

    Good content. More context than actual content in my opinion but not bad. THE VOICES ARE AWFUL!!! It goes way past comical stupidity and is really frustrating/makes you cringe. It's unb

    Absolutely required for financial literacy

    Foundational! should be taught in every school in America.
    So many people live in financial slavery for want of understanding.

    Brilliant.

    Like many others, I thought I was downloading a reading of the book by Adam Smith. I almost returned my purchase when I realized it was an analysis of that book.

    Glad I did not. Brilliantly explained and well written and perfectly narrated. Well done.

    Great summary of Smiths work.

    Smith was brilliant but 18th century writing is hard to follow. This edition explains his ideas in a way the modern reader can comprehend. I liked the contributions of the other narrators.

    A necessary compendium to the book

    This book was necessary to understand the thinking of Adam Smith. It made his work easier to understand.

    Not the wealth of nations

    It's not the original book "the wealth of nations" by Adam Smith, but a commentary on Adam Smith

    Covered key ideas in a short timeframe well

    I needed to learn “essential ideas and views of Adam Smith” for an economics paper I’m working on for class. This was exactly what I needed (right balance of depth and time investment).

    The additional voices (actors) are terrible and a distraction but you just have to overlook that.

    essential reading

    there is no doubt that this was a work of wonder. the wealth of nations is a capstone of modern day macro economic theory. it appears antiquated now, but it was revolutionary. I strongly recommend this
