About this product
- DescriptionRecognized in its own day as an important and compassionate examination of ecomics, it was praised by Thomas Jefferson as being an invative work in that field. Smith wrote The Wealth of Nations for several reasons, among them being that he was disgusted with the business methods practiced by merchants and manufacturers, and was concerned with improving the welfare of society. In 1934, echoing his own humanitarian views on commerce, industrialism, and labor, Eli Ginzberg published The House of Adam Smith, which was based on his doctoral dissertation for Columbia University. The book is divided into two parts, the first being a reconstruction and interpretation of The Wealth of Nations, while the second examines Smith as the patron saint/prophet of nineteenth-century capitalism.
- Author BiographyEli Ginzberg is A. Barton Hepburn Professor Emeritus at the Graduate School of Business and director of the Eisenhower Center for the Conservation of Human Resources at Columbia University. His work in social policy, health care, human resources, and the special needs of the poor, young and aged place Ginzberg in a special category: activist scholar rather than academic-turned-activist. He has been the subject of a recent festschrift (Eli Ginsberg: The Economist as a Public Intellectual), and is the author of numerous books, including New Deal Days: 1933-1934 and A World Without Work: The Study of the Welsh Miners, both available from Transaction.
