Wealth Of Nations By Adam Smith Wealth of Nations? Adam Smith shows, systematically and consistently, how a market-based economic system promotes general welfare through the sole maximisation of individual outcomes. Smith goes through a completely exhausting and methodical explanation about the nature of money, and in actuality what defines wealth. Smith quotes money is a common language, as I have already observed, frequently signifies wealth, and this ambiguity of expression has rendered this popular notion so framiliar to us, that even those who are convinved of its absurdity are very apt to forget their own principles, and in the course of their resonings to take it for granted as a certain and undeniable truth. Smith puts forth a truth that in a space connot be sceen yet controlls(ed) the majority. This wrong doing lurks with in everyone yet the fundamentals are forgotten and money becomes the definition for eternal happiness and well being. This writting by Smith is a foundation in not just ecomonics, but the ropes of capitalism. In which that time began sckewing the picture of a financial economy that has brought only an uphill battle of financial credit and dept into our present day society.
