The Myth of Adam Smith
E. Elgar Pub., 1998 - 227 pagina's
A controversial account of the work of Adam Smith, which challenges orthodox thought on his contribution to economics. It argues that Smith's reputation as an economist or economic historian is undeserved. Smith's division of labour and market mechanism theories are found wanting.
