Synopsis: Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations is regarded by many as the most important text in the history of economics. Jerry Evensky's analysis of this landmark book walks the reader through the five "Books" of The Wealth of Nations, analyzing Smith's terms and assumptions and how they are developed into statements about economic processes in Book I, his representation of the dynamics of economics systems in Book II, and his empirical case for his model in Book III. With that framework in place, Evensky examines Smith's critique of alternative models, mercantilism and physiocracy, in Book IV, and Smith's presentation of the policy implications of his analysis presented in Book V. This guide highlights the nexus of Smith's economics and his work on ethics and jurisprudence, and in doing so Evensky sets his examination of The Wealth of Nations into a larger, holistic analysis of Smith's moral philosophy.

Book Description: Jerry Evensky's analysis of Adam Smith's landmark book, The Wealth of Nations, walks the reader through the principal concepts and arguments in each of the book's five sections. Evensky highlights its relationship to Smith's work on ethics and jurisprudence, offering a holistic perspective on Smith's larger moral philosophical vision.
