The Real Wealth of Nations
Creating a Caring Economics
From the author of the bestselling classic The Chalice and the Blade, The Real Wealth of Nations proposes a dramatic new economic model that could help resolve many of the most critical problems we face today, and offers concrete steps for putting this model into practice.Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations provided the first, most influential and lasting explanation of the workings of modern economics.
