Críticas:

"Unfortunately, Adam Smith didn't have graphs. Hundreds of pages of The Wealth of Nations that readers skim might have been condensed into several pages that readers skip entirely. Another thing Smith didn't have, besides graphs, was jargon. Economics was too new to have developed its thieves' cant. When Adam Smith was being incomprehensible he didn't have the luxury of brief, snappy technical terms as a shorthand for incoherence. He had to go on talking through his hat until the subject was (and the reader would be) exhausted."

Reseña del editor:

In "On The Wealth of Nations," America s most provocative satirist, P. J. O Rourke, reads Adam Smith s revolutionary "The Wealth of Nations" so you don t have to. Recognized almost instantly on its publication in 1776 as the fundamental work of economics, "The Wealth of Nations" was also recognized as really long: the original edition totaled over nine hundred pages in two volumesincluding the blockbuster sixty-seven-page digression concerning the variations in the value of silver during the course of the last four centuries, which, to those uninterested in the historiography of currency supply, is like reading Modern Maturity in Urdu. Although daunting, Smith s tome is still essential to understanding such current hot-topics as outsourcing, trade imbalances, and Angelina Jolie. In this hilarious, approachable, and insightful examination of Smith and his groundbreaking work, P. J. puts his trademark wit to good use, and shows us why Smith is still relevant, why what seems obvious now was once revolutionary, and why the pursuit of self-interest is so important."
