Adam Smith, 1776-1926: Lectures to Commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Publication of "The Wealth of Nations"

Excerpt

The lectures which are contained in the present volume were delivered at the University of Chicago during the months of December, 1926 -- February, 1927 in a series designed to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the publication of the Wealth of Nations. The influence of Adam Smith upon economic thought and practice has been so pronounced that it was thought worth while to trace some of the more prominent features of his teachings and to indicate some of the main channels of his influence. Grateful acknowledgment is made to the scholars who delivered the lectures in the series and also to The Robert Brookings Graduate School of Economics and Government for permission to include in the present volume the lecture by Professor Clark, part of which was delivered in a series of lectures sponsored by that institution as well as in the series at the University of Chicago.
