In noting, for the first time, the significance of the division of labor and by stating the hypothesis that a commodity's value correlates to its labor input, Smith anticipated the writings of Karl Marx. Like Marx's Das Capital and Machiavelli's The Prince, and this great book marked the dawning of a new historical epoch. Complete in one volume, this edition includes Edwin Cannan's celebrated introduction and notes as well as a full index.

Introduction by Robert Reich
Commentary by R. H. Campbell and A. S. Skinner
Adam Smiths masterpiece, first published in 1776, is the foundation of modern economic thought and remains the single most important account of the rise of, and the principles behind, modern capitalism. Written in clear and incisive prose, The Wealth of Nations articulates the concepts indispensable to an understanding of contemporary society; and Robert Reichs Introduction both clarifies Smiths analyses and illuminates his overall relevance to the world in which we live. As Reich writes, "Smiths mind ranged over issues as fresh and topical today as they were in the late eighteenth centuryjobs, wages, politics, government, trade, education, business, and ethics."
