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. A masterpiece of the eighteenth-century Scottish Enlightenment, it develops a theory of social order arising from the unintended consequences of self-interested behavior. This self regulating system of the free market, Adam Smith contends, protects consumers from entrenched special interests and is usually harmed by government intervention.

This program examines explains Smith's major arguments and provides the background necessary for comprehension. Each of the five books of The Wealth of Nations is covered in order to explain how the seemingly diverse themes relate to Smith's general purpose. Download and start listening now!

    " I thought the book was quite interesting back when I read it in high school. Some of the specific examples seemed quite irrelevant for how dated they were but the principles were fascinating. "
