This self regulating system of the free market, Adam Smith contends, protects consumers from entrenched special interests and is usually harmed by government intervention.This program examines explains Smith's major arguments and provides the background necessary for comprehension. Each of the five books of The Wealth of Nations is covered in order to explain how the seemingly diverse themes relate to Smith's general purpose.

Poor Commentary

This is not the Adam Smith book but simply someone else's weak interpretation. In my opinion it is misrepresented and I wasted two credits on this and part two. To make things worse I also got soaked a credit for "Democracy In America". Oh well, live and learn. I'd of given it zero stars if I could have.
