Wealth of Nations, The - Adam Smith

Wealth of Nations, The - Adam Smith

Author: Adam Smith Narrator: Multiple Narrators Release Date: 01/04/2020

An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, generally referred to by its shortened title The Wealth of Nations, is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. First published in 1776, the book offers one of the world's first collected descriptions of what builds nations' wealth, and is today a fundamental work in classical economics. By reflecting upon the economics at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the book touches upon such broad topics as the division of labour, productivity, and free markets.

The Wealth of Nations

Author: Adam Smith Narrator: Michael Edwards Release Date: 01/12/2010

First published in 1776, this work is the classic statement of economic liberalism or the policy of laissez-faire. Several fundamental principles or "axioms" were introduced in this work, including the division of labor, supply and demand, and free market capitalism as some of the most obvious. Smith's political economy is primarily individualistic: self-interest is the incentive for economic action. However, he shows that universal pursuit of self-interest contributes to the public interest, a concept probably best encapsulated by John F. Kennedy when he remarked, "a rising tide raises all boats." 'Edwards enunciates with unusual clarity, which helps with a book published in 1776.' 'Talking Book Review

The Wealth of Nations

Author: Adam Smith Narrator: A Supporting Cast, Craig Deitschmann Release Date: 01/08/2012

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 eighteenth-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. Edited by George Smith

The Wealth of Nations

The Wealth of Nations

Author: Adam Smith Narrator: Sean Barrett Release Date: 01/04/2008

It was Adam Smith (1723'90) who first established economics as a separate branch of knowledge, and many would say his work has never been surpassed. The Wealth of Nations, which appeared in 1776, is the definitive text for all who believe that economic decisions are best left to markets, not governments. At the heart of Smith's doctrine is an optimistic view of the effects of self-interest. Though each individual seeks only personal gain, the collective result is increased prosperity, which benefits society as a whole.

The Theory of Moral Sentiments

The Theory of Moral Sentiments

Author: Adam Smith Narrator: John Clickman Release Date: 01/06/2019

Written in 1759 by Scottish philosopher and political economist Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments provides much of the foundation for the ideas in his later works, most notably in The Wealth of Nations. Through this initial text, Smith expresses his general system of morals, exploring the propriety of action, reward and punishment, sense of duty, and the effect of numerous factors on moral sentiment. In so doing, Smith devised innovative theories on virtues, conscience, and moral judgment that are still relevant and accessible today. Though somewhat surprising to find a philosopher of Smith's abilities discussing aspects such as luck and sympathy and how they affect self-image or relationships, The Theory of Moral Sentiments never loses its critical excellence in its good-natured understanding of the human exploration for the meaning of being good.

The Theory of Moral Sentiments

Author: Adam Smith Narrator: John Klickman Release Date: 01/05/2020

Adam Smith (1723–1790) was a Scottish social philosopher and a pioneer of political economy. One of the key figures of the Scottish Enlightenment, Smith is the author of The Theory of Moral Sentiments and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. The latter, usually abbreviated as The Wealth of Nations, is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. It earned him an enormous reputation and would become one of the most influential works on economics ever published. Smith is widely cited as the father of modern economics and capitalism. Smith studied social philosophy at the University of Glasgow and the University of Oxford. After graduating, he delivered a successful series of public lectures at Edinburgh, leading him to collaborate with David Hume during the Scottish Enlightenment. Smith obtained a professorship at Glasgow teaching moral philosophy, and during this time he wrote and published The Theory of Moral Sentiments. In his later life, he took a tutoring position that allowed him to travel throughout Europe, where he met other intellectual leaders of his day. Smith returned home and spent the next ten years writing The Wealth of Nations, publishing it in 1776. He died in 1790.

Supermoney

Supermoney

Author: Adam Smith, John C. Bogle Narrator: Adam Zink Release Date: 01/07/2020

Supermoney focuses on the organizational and institutional impact of money and how it moves through society. 'The green stuff in your wallet is not the real money,' writes 'Smith.' There is a superior currency which Smith christens 'Supercurrency' -- income that has been sent through the prism of the markets. Between the earners of income and the holders of the Supercurrency is a tremendous gap -- one that leads people instinctively to the market. All investors need to learn the nature of the Supercurrency. Its power has bent the course of American business and even the seemingly precise numbers of accounting. Supermoney recounts the crisis weekends in 1970 when the market mechanism barely survived and the markets melted down. Some of the basic questions that were debated at the time are still considered: can money really be managed? can funds perform? what happens to individuals in a market dominated by professionals? was the idea that things would get better and better a phenomenon of a particular time. All this is told in the light, bright, funny style 'Adam Smith' has been renowned for four decades.
