An Enquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith 1776

The Wealth of Nations is one of the earliest attempts by the Scottish academic Adam Smith to describe the structure of the early industrialising economy in late-eighteenth century Britain. Smith's book is

one of the most important works of a new subject of political economy, known today more simply as economics and it still forms the basis of debate about the organisation and management of modern industrialised economies.
