1.0 von 5 Sternen Unlesbare Ausgabe, 27. April 2007
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Wealth of Nations (Taschenbuch)
Die Ausgabe ist schlicht unbrauchbar - Bindung und Papier sind von billiger Qualität. Um die Zeilen jeweils bis zur Buchmitte lesen zu können, muss der Seitenumschlag mit Gewalt getätigt werden. Das Papier ist bereits im neuen Zustand leicht gewellt. Das Druckbild erscheint mir auch sehr grob und schwer lesbar.

So schafft es die Ausgabe, trotz des niedrigen Preises ein schlechtes Preis/Leistungsverhältnis zu erzielen. Hier kann ich nur raten, lieber ein paar Euro mehr in eine Ausgabe zu investieren, die man auch tatsächlich lesen kann.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The Great Minds Series version has parts missing!, 26. September 1999
Von 
Daniel Krawisz (Austin, Texas) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
I was origionally reading the text version of this book on the internet until the printed version came. I was downtroden, sickened, and even frightened to find that the Great Minds Series version of The Wealth of Nations is incomplete, yet gives no indication whatsoever of being so.
The introduction and chapters 2, 3, and 4 of book 3 are simply not there. They are not even listed in the table of contents. There is no discrepency in the page numbers, or any other teletale indication that it is incomplete. It is not written anywhere that it is an abrigement.
I want to point out how careless it is and how misleading to the reader in comprehending the philosophy of Adam Smith to print an incomplete book without any warning.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Try the Cannan edition, 31. Juli 1998
isbn 0-226-76374-9
The enthusiasm of the other reviewers, which I share, should not omit some classic (and often neglected) replies to Smith. Try Fridrich List, as well as Alexander Hamilton's Report on Manufactures. List is the better of the two, focusing on the effect of banking crises on prices and deflation, he argues that tariffs are needed to protect the general level of economic activity. This is List's core argument and not to be confused with the "infant industry" characterization. Smith's work is of course a classic. Note also however that his careful analysis of the transition from a medieval to a capitalist economy was pretty thoroughly demolished by Marx in v. 1 of Capital, though Marx himself is (rightly) often characterized as a "classical economist" heavily influenced by Smith.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perhaps the most lucid "social" writing ever, 6. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Based on his previous writings on human behaviour, Adam Smith shows, systematically and consistently, how a market-based economic system promotes general welfare through the sole maximisation of individual outcomes. This book is a true masterpiece and laid the foundations for modern economic analysis. Though later criticised by many, Smith remains one of the most lucid thinkers on capitalism, despite the fact that he is permanently underestimated in the face of people like Marx. 222 years after its original publication, it maintains its powerful insights. A must read for anyone who refuses to be misled anti-market propaganda, whose results we so dreadfully witnessed throughout the 20th century.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Capitalism by it's first advocate, 13. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
This 18th Century book is a well-reasoned broadside against mercantilism and state-run monopolies. Suprisingly, it is incredibly easy-to-read, even compared to modern fiction novels, and you can just open it and let your eyes fall where they may. Vital reading for those who promote or oppose the free-market. Read about capitalism from a temperate, intellectual proponent, rather than a right-wing extremist or left-wing radical. Also, important details on the living standards of the factory worker in 18th Century England from someone who actually lived in those times, rather than biased guesswork on the part of later 19th Century writers - it'll change your perspective!

4.0 von 5 Sternen happiness, 22. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
It's a beautiful book, the Don Quijote of the Economy in the sense that is the best book I have ever read on macro and microeconomy; and it's amazing that he didn't even know the meaning of these words.Nothing to say about the invisible hand theory, but much to say about the salary fund theory, refused by most of the nowadays economists jus because they don't understand,maybe, the real meaning of the idea. the 35 hours model that is to be put in work by france Government is the same as saying that salary fund theory should work because the idea laying on its spirit is this one. when an idea works, it remains the same through time even though it changes its name.I wished every economist in the world could read this book to wide the tight point of view that economy schools causes us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Oh, How much we owe Smith!, 20. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I must take exception to the Amazon review: saying that Smith viewed Capitalism suspiciously is utterly untenable. From the very first chapter, Smith makes clear the genius of markets, the benefits of the division of labor, and how government intrusion upon "perfect liberty" creates economic inefficiencies. As the Industrial Revolution was in its infancy, Smith keenly perceived the theoretical framework for its future development: property rights, markets, free trade, and government non-intervention. These institutions allowed for unprecedented economic growth (there was more economic growth in the 19th century than in the preceeding 4000 years) and thus the sustainability of modern life. We cannot express enough gratitude to Dr. Smith.

5.0 von 5 Sternen How to lift a nation out of poverty, 20. Oktober 1999
Von 
J. B. Wight (Richmond, VA United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations brilliantly analyzes how a nation's living standards can be raised. In large part his wisdom still applies today. To briefly summarize Smith's thinking:
1. Standards of living are determined by the productivity of workers.
2. Productivity of workers is greatly enhanced by specialization (see the famous example of the pin factory in the first chapter!).
3. Greater specialization is possible only if the market size grows. Thus, government laws that prohibit growth of the market hurt specialization, and thereby keep living standards from rising. This is why Smith opposed laws that restricted trade or created monopolies. Smith actively worked to keep Britain from going to war against its American colonies over trade issues. The Wealth of Nations is a political tract designed to sway the British parliament (obviously it failed in that regard).
4. Productivity of workers is enhanced by raising their wages.
5. Productivity of workers is enhanced by publicly funded education.
6. The role of markets is exquisitely analyzed by Smith. Self-interest leads people to carry out private activities that lead to social betterment, as if by an "invisible hand."
7. It is a serious misinterpretation of Smith to assert that greed or selfishness is the same as self-interest. Smith labored hard to avoid any such confusion. Please see his other book which addresses this specific issue: The Theory of Moral Sentiments.
8. Clearly Smith favored limited government. But Smith was NOT a strict advocate of laissez-faire. He ended his illustrious career as commissioner of customs, a job he took seriously, and which he would not have taken had he not thought this level of intervention in the economy warranted.
Read the first three chapters of WN: they contain the essence of the arguments above. Then look in the index to find reference to the "invisible hand" "monopoly" "colonies" and other subjects of interest.
Buy the GLASGOW EDITION of the Wealth of Nations. This is the most up-to-date annotated version. It is available (very cheaply) from the Liberty Fund Press in America. If you only want one copy, that is the only one to buy today.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for any student of economics., 5. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
He laid the foundation for the capitalist, free market economy and is one the founders of modern day economics. Lissez-faire and how it is accomplished. It should be required for any upper-level economics class. For this reason I gave it four stars. Not to detract from an excellent book, but you must have good working knowledge of economics before reading it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hoch interresant, 7. Februar 2014
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Bin bei der Vorbereitung zum Thema "das Streben nach Glück" darauf gestoßen. Man findet viele Gedanken kluger Köpfe in diesem Klassiker vorgedacht.
