Wealth of Nations An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of
Nations is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist Adam Smith. It is
a clearly written account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution,
as well as a rhetorical piece written for the generally educated individual of
the 18th century - advocating a free market economy as more productive and more
beneficial to society.
