Product description

The Wealth of Nations was published 9 March 1776, during the Scottish Enlightenment and the Scottish Agricultural Revolution. It influenced a number of authors and economists, as well as governments and organizations. For example, Alexander Hamilton was influenced in part by The Wealth of Nations to write his Report on Manufactures, in which he argued against many of Smith's policies. Interestingly, Hamilton based much of this report on the ideas of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, and it was, in part, Colbert's ideas that Smith responded to with The Wealth of Nations. Many other authors were influenced by the book and used it as a starting point in their own work, including Jean-Baptiste Say, David Ricardo, Thomas Malthus and, later, Ludwig von Mises. The Russian national poet Aleksandr Pushkin refers to The Wealth of Nations in his 1833 verse-novel Eugene Onegin.

The Wealth of Nations
by Adam Smith

It is symbolic that Adam Smith’s masterpiece of economic analysis, The Wealth of Nations, was first published in 1776, the same year as the Declaration of Independence.

In his book, Smith fervently extolled the simple yet enlightened notion that individuals are fully capable of setting and regulating prices for their own goods and services. He argued passionately in favor of free trade, yet stood up for the little guy. The Wealth of Nations provided the first--and still the most eloquent--integrated description of the workings of a market economy.

The result of Smith’s efforts is a witty, highly readable work of genius filled with prescient theories that form the basis of a thriving capitalist system. This unabridged edition offers the modern reader a fresh look at a timeless and seminal work that revolutionized the way governments and individuals view the creation and dispersion of wealth--and that continues to influence our economy right up to the present day.

Firestone Walker Marks 20 Years With “XX” Anniversary Ale

I wasn’t really thinking about barrel aging at the time, but when he called the light bulb went off, and I thought, ‘Holy s***, I need those barrels. ” This year, 17 winemakers convened in late August to help create the blend for XX. As always, they were tasked with creating their own preferred blends, with all of these initial blends later being blind tasted on the group. After votes were cast, the blend by Scott Hawley of Torrin Vineyard was deemed the winner and became the basis for XX. “As a finished blend, XX is a beautifully textured and complex brew, with layers that unfold as the beer opens up. At first... Overall the beer is silky smooth, incredibly balanced and finishes with a touch of kirsch filled truffle – a perfect blend of everything we love about our vintage barrel program. This beer is unfiltered and unfined, so there will be a small amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. XX is best enjoyed poured carefully into a half filled brandy snifter or wine glass. Allow it to warm to 55F to fully enjoy the pleasing and complex aromas. As the beer sits and breathes in the glass the true complexity of this blend is revealed, so take your time. If you wait to open your bottle later, store it in a cool, dark place. I suspect, like our other Anniversary offerings, that this beer will age well and change favorably for years to come.

Born in Kirkcaldy the young Smith had a precocious intellect gaining admition to Glasgow University at the age of 14. He became a friend of the David Hume (whose own statue is on the opposite side of the Royal Mile) and through Hume was tenured at Edinburgh University. Adam Smith's greatest achievements were in the realms of economics: - "After toiling for nine years, in 1776 Smith published An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (usually shortened to The Wealth of Nations), which is thought of as the first work dedicated to the study of political economy. Economics of the time were dominated by the idea that a country’s wealth was best measured by its store of gold and silver. Smith proposed that a nation’s wealth should be judged not by this metric but by the total of its production and commerce—today known as gross national product (GDP). He also explored theories of the division of labor, an idea dating back to Plato, through which specialization...

The plaque is mounted on the entrance to Panmure Close off the Canongate in Edinburgh which leads to the house, originally built for the Earls of Panmuir. Adam Smith's seminal work: The Wealth of Nations was published in 1776 and was an immediate international best-seller. Smith died in 1790 apparently following a long night of intellectually debilitating conversation with like-minded associates. Whether he passed away in this house, I don't know but it might well be so, he certainly died in Edinburgh. Some of his titles were published posthumously including: Essays on Philosophical Subjects, and Lectures on Justice, Police, Revenue and Arms Adam Smith 1723 - 1790.
