Adam Smith’s Ideas Applied to Today’s Economy by Alexandra Haen

Subject

Economics

Description

This paper focuses on Adam Smith’s “An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations”, which was published in 1776 and continues to be a highly regarded contribution to economic theory. Through comparing Smith’s ideas on topics such as production, foreign trade, taxation, and different areas of government spending with current United States policies, one can begin to see how the state of America’s economy lines up with Smith’s ideal system and which changes Smith might suggest.
