5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Work
This volume was published in the 1800's so the language is a little dated. However, what the author does is give a extended precis of Smith's wonderful work: 'Theory of Moral Sentiments', using much of the same language and sentence structure as Smith himself.

It is a useful work, and provides and excellent overview of this much neglected work of the great Adam Smith ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
Adam Smith was a Scottish professor of moral philosophy. He published his classic The Wealth of Nations in 1776, the year the American Revolution began. Smith became widely known for his ideas of free markets, laissez-faire commerce, and the "invisible hand."Yet English politicians, landed gentry, and the nobility paid little attention and enacted none of Smith's suggested reforms.

The American colonies, however, began their existence as an independent nation in 1781 with no money, no industry, no banks, and deep in debt.The Founding Fathers-particularly Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin-turned to the ideas of Adam Smith to create and jump-start an economic system for America with both immediate and long-sustained results.

This little-known but vital part of U.S. history is now revealed in Roy C. Smith's highly readable new book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Say What?

Mr Brady's comments begin with an anachronism, and don't get much better. Jean-Baptiste Say was nine years old when America declared its independence in 1776. None of his thoughts on political economy were even published until 1789.

Clearly, Say could not have influenced the Founders Mr Brady approves of, at least not literally, in the way he suggests.

-- J. C. Legere

3-0 out of 5 stars The title of the book is correct but not much else
R Smith is certainly correct that Hamilton,Washington,Madison,Franklin,etc.,had either read the Wealth of Nations(WN,1776) or were familiar with its point of view.Of course,these individuals formed the Federalists.They were the real thing as far as genuine conservatism is concerned.They were opposed by the Anti Federalsts(Mason,Randolph,Henry,Paine,Jefferson,etc.)who took their cue from the work of J B Say.These individuals are not conservatives.They are libertarians.It is this group that believed in laissez faire,opposed all tariffs,opposed a uniform currency,opposed the creation of a central bank to control the problematic behavior of private commercial banks,opposed the creation of a strong federal government,opposed giving the federal government the power to tax,etc.R Smith has obviously not read the Wealth of Nations in its entirety because the realAdam Smith favored overall progressive taxes,supported both revenue and retaliatory tariffs,supported extensive public goods and works spending by a democratically elected government(as opposed to the " Government" tyranny of George III.R Smith badly misrepresents Smith's views here),had a very clear understanding of free market failure,externalities and spillover effects,the need to prevent any bank loans from going to projectors(J M Keynes's rentiers and speculators),prodigals,and imprudent risk takers,the need to fix the rate of interest in the long run permanently at a low level a little bit above the prime rate,the skewing of loans to the sober middle class entrepreneurs who would use the loans to create productive jobs and not leveraged buyouts ,dot com frauds,and subprime scams, and the importance of making sure that all individuals had an education and religious instruction that would be provided free of charge by the state if they were unable to pay for such education themselves.Thereis no substantial discussion of any of these Smithian topics anywhere in R Smith's book.R Smith appears to believe that Adam Smith was a libertarian.Nothing could be further from the truth.The interested reader is encouraged to read pp.280-340,especially Smith's summary on pp.339-340,434-439,681-690,716-768,and 794-795 of the Modern Library(Cannan)edition of the WN to discover the real Adam Smith.You will not find him in this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Straight-forward, center-right review
Roy C. Smith offers a readable, straight-forward, right-of-center review of the famous economist, Adam Smith.The book introduces Smith's thoughts in basic detail, and spends a great deal of time putting Smith in the context of the American revolution, which of course is when "The Wealth of Nations" was published, in 1776.At times the history seems to drown-out the thems of Adam Smith's contribution, but by the conclusion the author ties up his thesis that Adam Smith's thought had a pervasive and substantial impact on the Founding Fathers, and upon the way Americans have done busness since then.A good read for introductory or undergraduate readers.Author's focus remains on Smith and American context.Little mention of John Maynard Keynes is made, and no discusion of Marx or socialism as a competing alternative.This did not detract from book, as plenty of other books and articles speak to those subjects. ...
