The Wealth of Nations

World famous 18th Century text that forms the foundation of the modern study of economics. It’s difficult going but if you can stick it out you’ll be rewarded, not just with a dazzling display of economic insight which, when taken in the context of the time, is nothing short of genius, but also a generous helping of psychology, sociology and philosophy as well. Try O’Rourke’s witty and irreverent digest (above) if that all seems like a bit too much.
