Biography of Adam Smith (1723-1790)
Quote Adam Smith was a Scottish political economist and philosopher. He has become famous by his influential book The Wealth of Nations (1776). Smith was the son of the comptroller of the customs at Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland. The exact date of his birth is unknown. However, he was baptized at Kirkcaldy on June 5, 1723, his father having died some six months previously. At the age of about fifteen, Smith proceeded to Glasgow university, studying moral philosophy under "the never-to-be-forgotten" Francis Hutcheson (as Smith called him). In 1740 he entered Balliol college, Oxford, but as William Robert Scott has said, "the Oxford of his time gave little if any help towards what was to be his lifework," and he relinquished his exhibition in 1746. In 1748 he began delivering public lectures in Edinburgh under the patronage of Lord Kames. Some of these dealt with rhetoric and belles-lettres, but later he took up the subject of "the progress of opulence," and it was then, in his middle or late 20s, that he first expounded the economic philosophy of "the obvious and simple system of natural liberty" which he was later to proclaim to the world in his Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations . About 1750 he met David Hume, who became one of the closest of his many friends.

Human nature economic growth: The uniform, constant and uninterrupted effort of every man to better his condition, the principle from which public and national, as well as private opulence is originally derived, is frequently powerful enough to maintain the natural progress of things toward improvement, in spite both of the extravagance of government, and of the greatest errors of administration. Like the unknown principle of animal life, it frequently restores health and vigour to the constitution, in spite, not only of the disease, but of the absurd prescriptions of the doctor.

Tras estudiar Filosofía moral, pronto se inclina por la economía política, formándose en las universidades de Glasgow y Orford. En la de Edimburgo enseña Retórica y Literatura a partir de 1748, entablando una amistad con Hume que resultará fundamental para su pensamiento. Durante trece años ejercerá la docencia en Filosofía moral en la Universidad de Glasgow, publicando en 1759 su primer escrito ("Teoría de los sentimientos morales"). Viaja a Francia en 1764, donde conocerá a los intelectuales fisiócratas y su doctrina. Tras regresar a Escocia, se dedica durante diez años a escribir su magna obra "Investigación sobre la naturaleza y causa de la riqueza de las naciones", publicada al fin en 1776. Un año más tarde ejercerá de comisionado de Aduanas (1777). A partir de 1787 será rector de la Universidad de Glasgow. Smith aporta grandes novedades teóricas para comprender el mundo de la naciente economía capitalista. Son suyos conceptos como la división del trabajo, del que partirán la especialización y el trabajo en serie, valor de uso y valor de cambio, o la catalogación del trabajo como un valor mercantil. Su análisis del progreso económico muestra una vertiente optimista. El mayor valor de su obra es el método de análisis propuesto, basado en leyes propuestas a partir de la observación de comportamientos y hechos. Así, demuestra una especial capacidad para desvelar las claves de la economía, si bien su espíritu práctico le hace a veces carecer de rigor científico. Su pensamiento contribuye al abandono de los postulados mercantilistas, partidarios a ultranza del

Theory of Moral Sentiments

Smith asks that most fundamental question: Why do we regard certain actions or intentions with approval and condemn others? The Theory of Moral Sentiments establishes a new liberalism, in which social organization is seen as the outcome of human action but not necessarily of human design.

Wealth of Nations

A vast and stinging critique of the crippling regulation of commerce and trade that was then current, it argued that if people were set free to better themselves, it would - ‘as if by an invisible hand’ - actually benefit the whole of society. The book influenced thought and politics profoundly, and was one of the foundations of the era of liberal free trade that dominated the Nineteenth Century.
Adam Smith (1723-1790) was the great Scottish philosopher and economist who is best known for his book The Wealth of Nations.
Raised by his widowed mother in Kirkcaldy, Smith won scholarships to Glasgow University and then Balliol College, Oxford. Returning to Glasgow, he was appointed Professor of Logic (1751), then Professor of Moral Philosophy (1752) and lectured on natural theology, ethics, jurisprudence and economics.
At the age of 36 he published The Theory of Moral Sentiments, a groundbreaking work on moral philosophy. His abilities caught the eye of the Duke of Buccleuch, who engaged him as Tutor to his son on the Grand Tour of Europe, where Smith met other eminent thinkers such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Franklin.

Adam Smith
Economist and Philosopher Virtue is more to be feared than vice,
because its excesses are not subject to
the regulation of conscience.
Adam Smith
was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland. The exact date of his birth is unknown, however, he was baptized on June 5, 1723. Smith was the Scottish political economist and philosopher, who became famous for his influential book "The Wealth of Nations" written in 1776. In 1751 Smith was appointed professor of logic at Glasgow university, transferring in 1752 to the chair of moral philosophy. His lectures covered the field of ethics, rhetoric, jurisprudence and political economy, or "police and revenue." In 1759 he published his Theory of Moral Sentiments, embodying some of his Glasgow lectures. This work was about those standards of ethical conduct that hold society together, with emphasis on the general harmony of human motives and activities under a beneficent Providence. Smith moved to London in 1776, where he published "An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations," which examined in detail the consequences of economic freedom. It covered such concepts as the role of self-interest, the division of labor, the function of markets, and the international implications of a laissez-faire economy. "Wealth of Nations" established economics as an autonomous subject and launched the economic doctrine of free enterprise. Smith laid the intellectual framework that explained the free market and still holds true today. He is most often recognized for the expression "the invisible hand," which he used to demonstrate how self-interest guides the most efficient use of resources in a nation's economy, with public welfare coming as a by-product. To underscore his laissez-faire convictions, Smith argued that state and personal efforts, to promote social good are ineffectual compared to unbridled market forces.

Excerpt from When Corporations Rule the World 2nd Edition by David C. Korten
It is ironic that corporate libertarians regularly pay homage to Adam Smith as their intellectual patron saint, since it is obvious to even the most casual reader of his epic work The Wealth of Nations that Smith would have vigorously opposed most of their claims and policy positions. For example, corporate libertarians fervently oppose any restraint on corporate size or power. Smith, on the other hand, opposed any form of economic concentration on the ground that it distorts the market's natural ability to establish a price that provides a fair return on land, labor, and capital; to produce a satisfactory outcome for both buyers and sellers; and to optimally allocate society's resources. Through trade agreements, corporate libertarians press governments to provide absolute protection for the intellectual property rights of corporations. Smith was strongly opposed to trade secrets as contrary to market principles

32. Adam Smith
Grandes Economistas Adam Smith (1723-1790)
La publicación del libro " La Riqueza de las Naciones " de Adam Smith en 1776, es considerado el origen de la Economía como ciencia. Los clásicos escribieron en una época en la que la industria estaba conociendo un desarrollo sin precedentes. Su preocupación principal fue el crecimiento económico y temas relacionados como la distribución, el valor, el comercio internacional, etc. Uno de sus objetivos principales fue la denuncia de las ideas mercantilistas restrictivas de la libre competencia que estaban aún muy extendidas en su época. Para Adam Smith, el Estado debía abstenerse de intervenir en la economía ya que si los hombres actuaban libremente en la búsqueda de su propio interés, había una mano invisible que convertía sus esfuerzos en beneficios para todos. Hijo de una modesta familia escocesa, a los 14 años ingresa en la Universidad de Glasgow donde se convierte en discípulo del profesor de filosofía moral F. Hutchison. Después ingresa en la Universidad de Oxford donde permanece seis años. En 1748 ocupa un puesto de profesor de literatura en la Universidad de Edimburgo y en 1751 pasa a la de Glasgow donde substituye a Hutchison en la cátedra de Filosofía Moral. Adam Smith estaba inicialmente interesado en la ética. En el libro "

by Nadia Weiner, Director of the Adam Smith Club of Sydney, Australia
Although Adam Smith is often quoted, the so-called "Father of Economics" has rarely been read, either by his detractors or his admirers. Consequently he is often misunderstood. Smith, who made such a strong stand against the protectionist mercantile system of trade of his day, devoted over ONE THIRD of his masterpiece An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, to discussing the subject of government revenue and the methods by which it may be best collected, including new taxes. This is not generally known. When examining the different forms of taxation, Smith adheres to four maxims which a good tax should conform to:

The Wealth of Nations: Of Colonies
Quote Context Of the advantages which Europe has derived from the discovery of America. Those advantages may be divided, first, into the general advantages which Europe, considered as one great country, has derived from those great events; and, secondly great events; and secondly, into the particular advantages which each colonizing country has derived from the colonles which particulars belong to it, in consequence of the authority or dominion which it exercises over them. The general advantages which Europe, considered as one great country, has derived from the discovery and colonization of America, consist, first, in the increase of its enjoyments; and, secondly, in the augmentation of its industry. The surplus produce of America, imported into Europe, furnishes the inbabitants of this great continent with a variety of commodities which they could not Otherwise have possessed, some for conveniency and use, some for pleasure, and some for ornament, and thereby contributes to increase their enjoyments. The discovery and colonization of America, it will readily be allowed, have contributed to augment the in dustry, first, of all the countries which trade to it directly; such as Spain, Portugal, France, and England; and, secondly, of all those which, without trading to it directly, send, through the medium of other countries, goods to it of their own produce; such as Austrian Flanders, and some provinces of Germany, which, through the medium of the countries before mentioned, send to it a considerable quantity of linen and other goods. All such countries have evidently gained a more extensive market for their surplus produce, and must tonsequently have been encouraged to increase its quantity.
