An inquiry into the nature and causes of the wealth of nations by Adam Smith( Book )

90 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1776, the year in which the American Revolution officially began, Smith's Wealth of Nations sparked a revolution of its own. In it Smith analyzes the major elements of political economy, from market pricing and the division of labor to monetary, tax, trade, and other government policies that affect economic behavior. Throughout he offers seminal arguments for free trade, free markets, and limited government. Criticizing mercantilists who sought to use the state to increase their nations' supply of precious metals, Smith points out that a nation's wealth should be measured by the well-being of its people. Prosperity in turn requires voluntary exchange of goods in a peaceful, well-ordered market. How to establish and maintain such markets? For Smith the answer lay in man's social instincts, which government may encourage by upholding social standards of decency, honesty, and virtue, but which government undermines when it unduly interferes with the intrinsically private functions of production and exchange. Social and economic order arise from the natural desires to better one's (and one's family's) lot and to gain the praise and avoid the censure of one's neighbors and business associates. Individuals behave decently and honestly because it gives them a clear conscience as well as the good reputation necessary for public approbation and sustained, profitable business relations

The conventional received opinion of Adam Smith as an isolated figure, the founder of ' modern' economics, is thoroughly mistaken and misleading. This is the central premise of this book, first published in 1988, in which the author argues that by placing Smith' s work in its historical context, we discover profound continuities between Smith' s work and that of his predecessors, and his contemporaries. The effect is to re-orientate our perception of Smith and his achievement. No longer the single-handed champion of free markets

The growth and fluctuations of the Scottish pig iron trade, 1828-1873 by R. H Campbell( Book )

2 editions published in 1956 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before 1828 the iron trade of Scotland wos of little importancs nnd was failing, to keep abreast of the metallurgical industries of Englend and Wnlea, High coot a of production effectivoly prevented Scottish ironianste.ro from competing with others, c harrier which was overcome only by the application of hob instead of cold air in the bloat at the iurnocea. In turn this made possible the use of the local deposits, of black band ironstone and, without coking, the splint cool of Lanarkohire. The trade which was built on these foundations specialised in the production of pig iron for sale. Because of it o cheapness Scotch pig iron was used extensively not only in Britain but throughout the world. In the middle of the nineteenth century the chief foreign consumers wore the United States and Germany, though by the seventies Germany was dominant. The exceptionally favourable conditions on which the trade was based could not last indefinitely. The technical innovation which brought the new Scottish trade into being woo available for nil all adopt, though in moot cases outside Scotland its adoption was not attended with such startling, reductions in coot. Unlike the tecnnical, benefits, others did not possess the inimitable . geological advantages of 'The Scots. However, as the HOWEVER blackband ironstone and the better coal were used, these geologicol advantages were of necessity gradually lost. In addition other factors also operated against Scottish producer s. Since Scotch pig, iron was a phosophoric iron it was un suit a bio for the early processes of the modern steelmaking industry. Moro important, however, was the appearance of strong competition from. the north east of England. After 1850, 1; though using; the rich local deposits of ironstone, the trade of that district rose rapidly in import one o, Unfortunately, the offsets of these adverse forces beyond the control of the Scots were intensified by the imperviousness of many Scottish ironmasters to technical change after their initial introduction of the hot blast. Not until immediately after the period covered by the present study, when the economic prospects of the trade were les" favourable, were further general advances Made along; these lines. In many ways, therefore, it is possible to regard the period from 1028 to 1873 as one phase of technological dev el o pin out. Durin, the period 1828 to 1075 the Scottish pig iron trade wont through five main eyeles of economic activity. The course of the first, from about 1828 to 1843, was completely determined by the introduction of the hot blast, which ralsed the trade into n prosperous condition, when other sectors of the economy remained depressed. New producer is appeared and there way extensive capital investment, mainly in Lanerkshre, lasting well after the peak of the cycle. In the second and third eyeles in the new pig, iron trade, from 1844 to 1851 and from 1852 to 1862, the level of capital investment diminished. In the Loom of the forties investment at ill remained considerable. Much, however, we a no longer in Lanarkshire, where minerals were less easily obtained, but in Ayrshire and on the east coast. After the; peak of that cycle, however, there was a decided drop in investiment, which, thoug. it reappeared once more in the boom of the fifties, was less buoyant. After the national financial crisis of 1857 investment was undertaken usually beeause of the super-session of existing, equipment or through the need to move, to new sources of supply of minerals. These second and third cycle a are also noteworthy because, first, during them the vital .nature of the dependence of the Scottish, pig, iron trade on foreign demand was dearly demonstrated, raid, secondly, because during the forties the peculiar system of storing pig, iron in Glasgow and the selling of storekeepers' warrant a on -the Glasgow Pig Iron Market evolved, Beeause of the extensive speculation in warrants which grew up, this system played a particulerly important part .in moulding the later growth of the Scottish pig iron trade. In the fourth and fifth cycles, from 1863 to 1868 and from 1868 to 1875, the character of the trade way changed, because then the extent of competition from the north east of England, which WAS first oxperienced in the depression years after 1857, became the chief determinant of the Scottish. ironmasters' prosperity, Only for a time in the exceptionally prosperous times of the early seventies were the Seots freed from this adverse influence, Nevertheless.it was beneficial in bringing home to the ironmesters the need for further technical improvements, which were under token'' in the main only after 1873
