Pressestimmen

"Adam Smith's enormous authority resides, in the end, in the same property that we discover in Marx: not in any ideology, but in an effort to see to the bottom of things."
--Robert L. Heilbroner

Bin bei der Vorbereitung zum Thema "das Streben nach Glück" darauf gestoßen. Man findet viele Gedanken kluger Köpfe in diesem Klassiker vorgedacht.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A bit of a challenge to read, but worth it! 28. April 2012
Von Alan Bedford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I waited until 40+ years after I studied economics in college to get around to reading Wealth of Nations. (It wasn't on the syllabus). Definitely my loss. Is it an easy read? No, but this Kindle edition has modernized spelling and lost the random capitalization. The vocabulary is be a little challenging, but that's why your Kindle has a dictionary built in - and you may also need Google, as I did, for some of the more obscure usages. A little background in 17th-18th century British history also helps. I recommend making plenty of notes in your Kindle as you go.

Smith compares/contrasts the economies of hunter-gatherer, nomadic and warrior civilizations, as well as feudal and mercantilist economies, and outlines a free-trade system which he would like to see, which we call "capitalism". Unfortunately, it seems to me that the mercantile system has prevailed in the long run, at least as far as international trade is concerned. He makes considerable use of historical examples as well as contemporary (to him) events, and he seems ambivalent about the prospects for the American colonies which were then in revolt.

Wordy? A little repetitive? Yes, Smith could have used a good editor. But not to be missed. And a serious bargain at this price.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Wealth of Nations 26. April 2012
Von normbenign - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Of course this is a classic, and hardly needs my recommendation. My only reason for limiting it to four stars is that it is a difficult read. Smith, an 18th century Scott, doesn't write the English that we speak today. He is extremely detailed, and one must remember he is writing of the English economy of three centuries ago. Some of the analysis is anachronistic, but most remains true to this day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Adam Smith"s Wisdom is Perfect for Today (2013) 19. November 2013
Von larry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Adam Smith is as relevant today and he was when the Wealth of Nations was published in 1976. Smith was able to look at the world around him and then explain in great detail how barriers to free trade hurt the very people for whose benefit the barriers were erected. I wish that all 9th graders were required to read the Wealth of Nations because they will have to grow up and live in the world Adam Smith described and not the world our public school systems describe. My favorite section of text is:

"As every individual, therefore, endeavours as much as he can, both to employ his capital in the support of domestic industry, and so to direct that industry that its produce maybe of the greatest value; every individual necessarily labours to render the annual revenue of the society as great as he can.

He generally, indeed, neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry, he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain; and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention. Nor is it always the worse for the society that it was no part of it. By pursuing his own interest, he frequently promotes that of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it.

I have never known much good done by those who affected to trade for the public good. It is an affectation, indeed, not very common among merchants, and very few words need be employed in dissuading them from it" (Smith, 1776/2003, p. 572).

I wholeheartedly recommend this book. Cheers, Larry

5.0 von 5 Sternen Adam Smith Gold 17. Oktober 2013
Von Ryan Constable - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not finished with this book yet, but it's a must for anyone interested in economics. Adam Smith's teachings are what our market was based on by our founders. The views he saw in 1776 are simple, yet too difficult for the mass of our generation to understand. Real world economics, as Steve Forbes calls it, are essential for everyone to know and this book and economics alike should be studied in school. It's time we get away from the bad rap of capitalism and back towards the findings off a free market, and this book is a perfect place to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An accessible classic of macro-economics 11. Mai 2013
Von Gabor Melli - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The Wealth of Nations is a wonderful read for people interested in international politics and globalization.Now I see why it continues to be referenced so frequently by both liberal conservatives and progressives. The benefits of economic freedom and harms of economic constraints are described with wonderful local examples (the butcher, the pin factory) and global examples (the success of the Dutch, the poverty of gold-rich Spain, and the stagnation in China). It can even be a self-help book to being more reasonably frugal.
