The most important book by the Scottish economist Adam Smith. First published in 1776. Smith proposed rules governing labour, supply, and demand, described division of labour, stockpiling of wealth, lending, and interest. His work laid a foundation of the modern economic science. "Wherever there is great property there is great inequality. For one very rich man there must be at least five hundred poor, and the affluence of the few supposes the indigence of the many." Adam Smith, ‘The Wealth of Nations’
