  • 现代经济学的开山之作,奠定了资本主义自由经济的理论基础。

    An important theme that persists throughout the book is the idea that the economic system is automatic, and, when left with substantial freedom, able to regulate itself. This is often referred to as the “invisible hand.” The ability to self-regulate and to ensure maximum efficiency, however, is threatened by monopolies, tax preferences, lobbying groups, and other “privileges” extended to certain members of the economy at the expense of others.

  • 内容简介
  • 《国富论》是“现代经济学之父”亚当·斯密最具影响力的代表作品。亚当·斯密认为国民财富的产生主要取决于两个因素,一是劳动力的技术、技巧和判断力,二是劳动力和总人口的比例;在这两个因素中,第一个因素起决定性作用。书中阐述了所谓市场上“一只看不见的手”。《国富论》一般被看作是现代经济学的开山之作,后来的经济学家基本是沿着他的方法分析经济发展规律的。这部著作也奠定了资本主义自由经济的理论基础,第一次提出了“市场经济会由‘无形之手’自行调节”的理论。

    It is the magnum opus of the Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. First published in 1776, the book offers one of the world's first collected descriptions of what builds nations' wealth, and is today a fundamental work in classical economics. By reflecting upon the economics at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the book touches upon such broad topics as the division of labour, productivity, and free markets.
