Podcast excerpt: Why is The Wealth of Nations a GREAT BOOK?
It's a Great Book because for the first time in history, it synthesized a great body of, then young, liberal principles of trade, and both domestic and international trade. It's beautifully written, and so it inspired a large number of people to continue in this exploration that Adam Smith so powerfully fueled. -- Don Boudreaux
