    While it has been pointed to time and again by governments and pundits promoting laissez-faire economics, the Wealth of Nations actually shows that Adam Smith viewed capitalism with a deep suspicion, and tempered his celebration of a self-regulating market with a darker vision of the dehumanizing potential of a profit-oriented society. Smith did not write an economics textbook, but rather a panoramic narrative about the struggle for individual liberty and general prosperity in history. This edition includes generous selections from all five books of the Wealth of Nations. It also provides full notes and a commentary that places Smith's work within a rich interdisciplinary context.About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe.

    Policy analysts, academics and journalists lament the influence of money on politics. But in the political economy, politicians often carefully design regulations so that two very different interest groups will be satisfied: “bootleggers,” who seek private benefits, and “Baptists,” who seek to serve the public interest, must both support the regulation. Economists Adam Smith and Bruce Yandle apply the theory to a wide range of current issues, including the financial crisis, Obamacare and environmental regulation.

    Can you see the Pretty Things?There are many things that Rory would like to forget about his childhood growing up in rural Arkansas. He’d like to forget his alcoholic father or absent mother. He’d like to forget about his ex-girlfriend, now married to his ex-best friend. Sometimes, he’d even like to forget about his older brother Joe. Joe saw the world differently than other people--sometimes in beautiful ways, seeing what he always called “the Pretty Things.” But sometimes the Pretty Things turned ugly and bad things happened. Those are the things Rory wishes he could forget most of all.When his car breaks down on the side of the road just out of town, a young girl named Sylvia appears from the corn fields. Sylvia is a Valkyrie sent by the Norse god Odin to deliver Rory to Valhalla. Because today is the day he’s going to die. Together, Rory and Sylvia walk back through the memories of Rory’s childhood, this time seeing them the way Joe saw them. Rory must face the Pretty Things, the Ugly Things, and all the real life in between before it’s time to say goodbye.
