“There is no art which one government sooner learns of another than that of draining money from the pockets of the people.”
Right from examining the division of labour, the origin and use of money, and the
division of stock, to the rise and progress of cities and towns after the fall of the Roman Empire, the systems of political economy, and the taxes on various private revenues, Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations provides an extensive assessment of the creation of a nation ‘s wealth.
Laying the foundation of classical political economy, this magnum opus is considered
one of the best non-fiction books of all time. More than two centuries after its first
publication in 1776, The Wealth of Nations continues to remain as influential as ever.
