FYW-1154 The Wealth of Nations


Adam Smith’s An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776) is arguably the most important book on economics ever published.  Indeed, the central tenets of this work provide the intellectual rationale for the free enterprise system of markets and government embraced by much of the modern world.  This first-year writing seminar will examine the economic, social, and moral theories put forth by the Scottish moral philosopher Adam Smith (1723-1790) and their applicability to the modern world.  As a writing seminar, much of our time will be focused on developing the skills necessary for successful college-level writing. 4 credits.
