An Epitome Book I, Chapter 1. Of the Division of Labor: The division of labor, so far as it can be introduced, occasions, in every art, a proportionable increase of the productive powers of labor. The separation of different trades and employments from one another seems to have taken place in consequence of this advantage. This separation, too, is generally called furthest in those countries which enjoy the highest degree of industry and improvement; what is the work of one man in a rude state of society being generally that of several in an improved one.....This great increase of the quantity of work which, in consequence of the division of labor, the same number of people are capable of performing, is owing to three different circumstances; first , to the increase of dexterity in every particular workman; secondly , to the saving of the time which is commonly lost in passing from one species of work to another; and lastly , to the invention of a great number of machines which facilitate and abridge labor, and enable one man to do the work of many....

Bibliografía ADAM SMITH.

La importancia de la aportación de Adam Smith puede sintetizarse diciendo que es el enfoque individualista de la economía que suple al estadista, que a grandes rasgos había sido el dominante durante muchos siglos, acabando así con el intervencionismo estatal.
La obra fundamental de Smith, se basa en el estudio de la naturaleza y causas de la riqueza de las naciones en el que puso las bases sobre las cuales tiempo después se habría planteado el liberalismo. Como la riqueza de las naciones trata sobre las causas que originan la capacidad distribuye la riqueza entre el pueblo, y lo divide en 5 tomos; en el primero señala las ventajas de la división del trabajo, y desde su punto de vistas se dice que si cada hombre interviene en las fases de la producción, esto haría que se generara más capital, ya que el intervenir en todo el proceso, se consigue que los operadores sean más diestros, se economiza tiempo y se permite que los trabajadores aprovechen su capacidad de inversión para crear instrumentos que faciliten el trabajo.

86. "Ibn Khaldun, The Father Of Economics"
Paper by Ibrahim M. Oweiss citing Khaldun's writings as the inspiration of modern economic theory and of adam smith himself.
In his Prolegomena (The Muqaddimah), 'Abd al-Rahman Ibn Muhammad Ibn Khaldun al-Hadrami of Tunis (A.D. 1332-1406), commonly known as Ibn Khaldun, laid down the foundations of different fields of knowledge, in particular the science of civilization (al-'umran). His significant contributions to economics, however, should place him in the history of economic thought as a major forerunner, if not the "father," of economics, a title which has been given to Adam Smith, whose great works were published some three hundred and seventy years after Ibn Khaldun's death. Not only did Ibn Khaldun plant the germinating seeds of classical economics, whether in production, supply, or cost, but he also pioneered in consumption, demand, and utility, the cornerstones of modern economic theory.
Before Ibn Khaldun, Plato and his contemporary Xenophon presented, probably for the first time In writing, a crude account of the specialization and division of labor. On a non-theoretical level, the ancient Egyptians used the techniques of specialization, particularly in the era of the Eighteenth Dynasty, in order to save time and to produce more work per hour. Following Plato, Aristotle proposed a definition of economics and considered the use of money in his analysis of exchange. His example of the use of a shoe for wear and for its use in exchange was later presented by Adam Smith as the value in use and the value in exchange. Another aspect of economic thought before Ibn Khaldun was that of the Scholastics and of the Canonites, who proposed placing economics within the framework of laws based on religious and moral perceptions for the good of all human beings. Therefore all economic activities were to be undertaken in accordance with such laws.

POL264 Modern Political Theory
R.J. Kilcullen In the POL167 course materials there is an essay 'Free enterprise and its critics' , which I suggest you read. It is not about Adam Smith particularly, but about the theory which he proposed and others developed. Today's lecture is about Adam Smith's statement of it. The full title of Adam Smith's most famous book is: An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations . On the nature Some later writers - e.g. Jeremy Bentham - explain wealth as 'the means of happiness'. Adam Smith did not think that individuals are much happier for being wealthier. People perhaps imagine that goods will make them happier and seek them for that reason, but they are deluded. And the delusion is a good thing, Adam Smith thinks, because without it people would not work. See TMS in Raphael, vol. 2, pp. 241-4. He seems to think that work and production is an end in itself. Again there is a contrast with Aristotle, who thought that a rational person would not seek possessions beyond those necessary or useful for living a worth-while life. Adam Smith seems to think that the indefinitely increasing production of things to be consumed by individuals is good, whether it makes them happier or not, whether of not it helps them live worth-while lives. the causes of the wealth of nations is mostly about that: nations have become wealthy because labour has become more productive.

POL264 Modern Political Theory
R.J. Kilcullen Adam Smith was born in Kirkcaldy, Scotland, in 1723 (Source on Smith's life: E G West, Adam Smith ). He entered Glasgow University in 1737, aged 14. This university still followed some practices of the medieval universities, for example in admitting students at age 14. Its professors still took fees directly from students: that had been the original practice in medieval universities, but in more famous universities rich people had endowed colleges within the university, which paid lecturers' salaries. The Glasgow timetable was still medieval. The main lecture took place at 7.30 am in the cold and dark, at 11 the students were quizzed on the mornings lecture, at 12 there was a lecture on an optional topic. This was the typical student's day in the thirteenth century. But the curriculum was modern: besides philosophy (the main medieval subject) students took Greek and Mathematics. The philosophy was modern. At Glasgow Adam Smith studied under Francis Hutcheson (see extracts from his works in Raphael British Moralists vol.1, p.261ff.)). Hutchison taught in English (not Latin) and was a vivid lecturer. Moral philosophy, or ethics, was a flourishing subject at the time. The main division was between two schools of 'intuitionists' (as they would now be called). To remind you: Ethics is concerned with what is good and bad, better and worse, in human conduct - in the ends we seek, in the actions in which we seek our ends. Intuitionism is the doctrine that in the last analysis we simply 'see' that some way of acting is good or right, or the opposite: that basic ethical assessments cannot be justified by argument, and do not need to be. 'See' of course is a metaphor. Many 18C moral philosophers held that it is

Discusses economic and political relationship between the U.S. and China with reference to the philosophy of adam smith.
Annita Lysikatou © 1999 Annita Lysikatou November 28, 1999 Engagement with China: A Smithian Perspective China seems to have been long stationary, and had probably long ago acquired that full complement of riches which is consistent with the nature of its laws and institutions. But this complement may be much inferior to what, with other laws and institutions, the nature of its soil, climate, and situation might admit of. A country which neglects or despises foreign commerce, and which admits the vessels of foreign nations into one or of its ports only, cannot transact the same quantity of business which it might do with different laws and institutions. Adam Smith, The Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations Book I, Chapter IX Introduction In today's post-Cold War world, U.S. foreign policy faces a plethora of uncertainties in the economic, social and political spheres. With the geopolitical order currently reduced to one major superpower, the new order is still quite amorphous. For such reasons, politicians, economists, military strategists and others in Washington have sought to answer the question, "Is there any particular country that has the potential to rise to the level of a regional, or even global, hegemon in the 21 st century?" Evidence suggests so, and the country that has placed itself on the path of fulfilling that prophecy is the People's Republic of China. A 1994

... in 12,500 words
"It is not from the benevolence of the butcher the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest." INTRODUCTION to THE WEALTH OF NATIONS
When Adam Smith wrote The Wealth of Nations there were no economists, for he invented the science of Economics. Born in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, he became professor of logic at Glasgow in 1751, becoming professor of moral philosophy the following year. A personal friend of David Hume, his travels through Europe and his many contacts in business and government gave him the opportunity of making very detailed studies of the social forces giving rise to competition, trade, and markets. It is a remarkable achievement that, nearly 250 years on, this work, with its idea of the "invisible hand" of economic incentives, is still one of the essential basic texts of its field. THIS SQUASHED VERSION
Although large by the standards of the 'Squashed Philosopher' series at 13,000 words, this condensed version has reduced Smith's monumental 383,000-word, 1000-page work to about 3.5% of its original size. Very little of his basic economic theory has been lost, but, the general theory now being so widely understood and accepted, it was not though necessary to include anything more than a taste of the vast array of fiscal and financial data and historical examples and justifications Smith provides. However, more than a fair smattering of his fascinating asides have been retained, despite the fact that some think the source of much of his data, about pin-making for instance, to be simply anecdotal. How he obtained his information about the beauty of Irish prostitutes is not known.

    Smith, Adam Smith, Adam, , Scottish economist, educated at Glasgow and Oxford. He became professor of moral philosophy at the Univ. of Glasgow in 1752, and while teaching there wrote his Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), which gave him the beginnings of an international reputation. He traveled on the Continent from 1764 to 1766 as tutor to the duke of Buccleuch and while in France met some of the physiocrats and began to write An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, finally published in 1776. In that work, Smith postulated the theory of the division of labor and emphasized that value arises from the labor expended in the process of production. He was led by the rationalist current of the century, as well as by the more direct influence of Hume and others, to believe that in a laissez-faire economy the impulse of self-interest would bring about the public welfare; at the same time he was capable of appreciating that private groups such as manufacturers might at times oppose the public interest. Smith was opposed to monopolies and the concepts of mercantilism in general but admitted restrictions to free trade, such as the Navigation Acts , as sometimes necessary national economic weapons in the existing state of the world. He also accepted government intervention in the economy that reduced poverty and government regulation in support of workers.
