Or search the encyclopaedia: Smith, Adam Scottish economist. Until comparatively recently, Adam Smith was known only as the author of a single book, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776), published in the same year as the American Revolution. This book is said to have established economics as an autonomous subject and, at the same time, to have launched the doctrine of free enterprise upon an unsuspecting world. It is true that he also published another major treatise, The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), a work about those standards of ethical conduct that hold society together, but this was a book that economists generally left unread. However, the recent publication of his many essays on philosophical and literary subjects suggests that he may have been working towards a complete system of social science, which he never lived to complete. laissez-faire

Brief Biography Quotes from The Wealth of Nations
  • 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.
  • 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...led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention.
  • No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable.
  • If a foreign country can supply us with a commodity cheaper than we ourselves can make it, better buy it of them with some part of the produce of our own industry employed in a way in which we have some advantage.
  • It is the highest impertinence and presumption, therefore, in kings and ministers, to pretend to watch over the economy of private people, and to restrain their expense, either by sumptuary laws, or by prohibiting the importation of foreign luxuries.

Review, No. 2. authoritative character which is felt to be inherent in our sense of right and wrongfor what Butler calls the supremacy of conscience. It is on the Wealth of Nations that Smiths fame rests. But it must at once be said that it is plainly contrary to fact to represent him, as some have done, as the creator of political economy. The subject of social wealth had always in some degree, and increasingly in recent times, engaged the attention of philosophic minds. The study had even indisputably assumed a systematic character, and, from being an assemblage of fragmentary disquisitions on particular questions of national interest, had taken the form, notably in Turgots R~fiexions, of an organized body of doctrine. The truth is that Smith took up the science when it was already considerably advanced; and it was this very circumstance which enabled him, by the production of a classical treatise, to render most of his predecessors obsolete. Even those who do not fall into the error of making Smith the creator of the science, often separate him too broadly from Quesnay and his followers, and represent the history of modern economics as consisting of the successive rise and reign of three doctrinesthe mercantile, the physiocratic and the Smithian. The last two are, it is true, at variance in some even important respects. But it is evident, and Smith himself felt, that their agreements were much more fundamental than their differences; and, if we regard them as historical forces, they must be considered as working towards identical ends. They both urged society towards the abolition of the previously prevailing industrial policy of European governments; and their arguments against that policy rested essentially On the same grounds.

Adam Smith (1723-1790)
One of the most influential social philosophers and political economists in all history is Adam Smith, from Kirkcaldy, Fife, whose master work An Inquiry into the nature of causes of the Wealth of Nations was first published in 1776 but has continued its appeal (and enormous influence) ever since.
First studying mathematics, natural philosophy and moral philosophy at Glasgow University, Smith entered Balliol College, Oxford in 1740. When he returned to Edinburgh to lecture, he met philosopher and skeptic David Hume as well as other leading intellectuals and trendsetters. In 1751, he became Chair of Logic at Glasgow and later of Moral Philosophy.
On a visit to Paris in 1764-5, Smith became acquainted with the ideas of many of the leading French thinkers of the day and was able to experience first-hand the closely controlled economy of France. His Wealth of Nations consequently reflected much of the ideas he had so readily absorbed in that country. It can be said to have marked the transition from a more-or-less late medieval to a modern economy. Smith was able to grasp intuitively what it was that constituted the real wealth of a nation; he advocated the then-revolutionary idea of free trade as a means of increasing that wealth.
The publication of Smith's work greatly influenced the thinking and policies of British Prime Minister William Pitt. For Smith, it was the "invisible hand" of competition that acted as the guiding light for en economic system based on individual self-interests. The idea of free trade dominated British economic policy right up until the 20th century when Smith's ideas were abandoned in favor of the old controls and restrictions that he had rightly condemned as being counterproductive to the acquisition of a country's wealth.

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.

111. Candidate George Bush Cocaine
Article by adam J. smith contends the president has a cocaine problem and questions his ability to determine U.S. drug policy.
George Bush Keeps Changing His Story
Governor Bush's Cocaine Problem
This article, first published in the summer of 2000, is not about George Bush's drug use. It is about how he dodges, ducks, and hedges when confronted with his past drug use. American citizens deserve a leader who can be frank and honest.
by Adam J. Smith
First he refused to confirm or deny it. Later he would say only that "when I was young and irresponsible, I was young and irresponsible." Next he said that the issue wasn't relevant. Then he said that he wouldn't address "rumors." Then he said that he could pass a standard security check dating back seven years. Finally, he said that he could've passed the security check in his father's White House fifteen years. Though he had to think before specifying whether he could've passed it then or now. Now, no matter what he says, the issue seems destined to dog him until the day he comes clean. Texas Governor and Republican presidential frontrunner George W. Bush, Jr. has a cocaine problem. Under normal circumstances, an individual's past drug use, especially if that use occurred in the distant past, should not be relevant to their qualifications for present employment. But in the race for the United States Presidency, it is relevant on two counts. In fact, in Governor Bush's case, it is relevant on three.

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
