Most do not know the Book "Wealth of Nations" written by Adam Smith is known as "The Bible of Capitalism." The reason for this is Smith outlines not just an economy system, but the first political economic system.

Would you agree that human morality depends on sympathy between one individual and society as a whole? Do you believe religion has a play in morality, that it should be the one conducting the role of sympathy?

An Inquiry into the Real Nature and Causes of The Wealth of Nations in the World

One of the greatest works inside the actual workings of a political economy. Most always believed that a country's wealth was solely based on its current storage and ownership of gold and silver. Adam Smith said this was ridiculous and instead a nation should be judged upon that nation's total production of all areas of production and commerce. This has become what we know today as Gross Domestic Product (GDP). He also reached back and studied Plato which hit upon the theories of the division of labor.
