Philosophical Literature

There's no real plot to this book. It's just Adam Smith laying out his ideas for how Britain can manage its economy better and provide better freedoms for its people. Along the way, he criticizes the country's colonial violence and its dumb policies for interfering in its economy. Smith ain't here to get us involved in characters or a plot. He's an ideas man, and his ideas have become some of the most important ones in the history of the western world.
