As those who have promoted the importance of asking ethical questions have stressed, Smith was the author not only of The Wealth of Nations published in 1776but also of an earlier volume, The Theory of Moral Sentiments published in 1759. Rather than being a boring economics textbook, is a historical narrative about why history shows that a free market and free trade system is best.

Subsistence varies substantially in cost from year to year, but some wages change very slowly. But have you ever been to Gary? But the very suggestion provoked his horror. But he combines canniness with strict historical accuracy, philosophical depth and, episodically, economic sense.
The proposition that resources seek their most profitable uses, so that in equilibrium the rates of return to a resource in various uses will be equal, is still the most important substantive proposition in all of economics. We favor crafting our own stories, while listening to those of others.
Even when they do not have all the answers, they can often recognize proposals that run so counter to basic economic principles that they are likely to be counterproductive.
Smith explains how we come to make these judgments from the point of view of a spectator.
No expense, he claimed, could be too great, no effort too strenuous, no policy too draconian, when the stakes are so large; all other problems must be set aside until this one is solved.
