Adam Smith

Adam Smith is considered as father of modern economics and a major proponent of laissez-faire economic policies. He was a Scottish moral philosopher, pioneer of political economy, and a key figure in the Scottish Enlightenment. He is best known for two classic works: The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759), and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776). The Wealth of Nations is considered his classic work and the first modern work of economics.
