Smith, one of the pillars of the Scottish Enlightenment, was a moral philosopher in addition to being an economist. In The Wealth of Nations, Smith laid the intellectual foundations for a liberal, free-market society, and in so doing revolutionized the understanding of how societies, governments, and markets interact. However, he insisted, from "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" onwards, that the 'invisible hand of the market' would regulate capitalist impulses and channel excessive behaviour into productive and beneficent projects. The Wealth of Nations further addresses questions of sovereignty of colonies, the origins of coinage, and the concept of credit, all of which would have profound influence on the germinating United States of America, which declared independence in July 1776, the same year that Smith's work was published. An attractively bound copy of the single most important work in economic history. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
