The Wealth of Nations

  • Adam Smith
  • An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, 1776.
  • Online version (

Description: The book is usually considered to be the beginning of modern economics. It begins with a discussion of the Industrial Revolution. Later it critiques the mercantilism and a synthesis of the emerging economic thinking of his time. It is mostly known due to the idea of The Invisible Hand which is an often quoted phrase from the book. Its meaning is that people will unintentionally improve their community through pursuit of their own wants and needs. The Butcher, the Baker, and the Brewer provide goods and services to each other out of self-interest; the unplanned result of this division of labor is a better standard of living for all three.

Das Kapital

Description: Das Kapital is a political-economic treatise by Karl Marx. The book is a critical analysis of capitalism and of the political economy practices during his time. Marx bases his work on that of the classical economists like Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and even Benjamin Franklin. However, he applies these authors' ideas critically and carefully, so his book is more a critical synthesis than it follows the lead of any one thinker.

General Theory of Employment Interest and Money

  • John Maynard Keynes
  • General Theory of Employment Interest and Money, 1936

Description: The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money is generally considered to be the masterwork of the English economist John Maynard Keynes. To a great extent it created the terminology of modern macro-economics. It was published in February 1936. The book ushered in a revolution, referred to as the "Keynesian Revolution", in the way economists and men in public affairs thought about the economy, and especially how they thought about the feasibility and wisdom of public sector management of the aggregate level of demand in the economy.
