Adam Smith is considered one of the first economists. He wrote his most famous book The Wealth of Nations in 1776, around the same time as the Declaration of Independence. In this book Adam Smith explains some of the basic principles that require a civilization to work. I will be writing posts about the different subjects that he discusses in his book, for the next couple of weeks, in a hope to expand your knowledge of economics from someone besides the government.
