The Wealth of Nations
The Wealth of Nations3.89 46 5 Author: Adam Smith Narrator: Craig Deitschmann, a supporting cast
In this masterpiece of the eighteenth-century Scottish Enlightenment, Smith develops a theory of social order arising from the unintended consequences of self-interested behavior. This self-regulating system of the free market, Smith contends, protects consumers from entrenched special interests and is usually harmed by government intervention.
Far more than just a work on economic theory, The Wealth of Nations also contains Smith’s views on philosophy, history, and political theory.
This program discusses Adam Smith’s general approach to philosophy and how The Wealth of Nations fits into that approach. It also explains Smith’s major arguments and themes. Smith’s sometimes difficult discourse is presented with the background information necessary for its comprehension.
The Giants of Political Thought series is an easy and entertaining way to broaden your mind and your awareness of great ideas.
