It is called the "man of one book", which is akin to Newton's "Principles" in physics, became the basis of classical Economics. Smith, who sought universal laws of social organization, discovered the mechanism of action of the "invisible hand" of the market. Aphoristically accurately, with noble simplicity and expressiveness, is not peculiar to the economic treatises, he has introduced the concept of "primitive accumulation of capital" and described the division of labor and competition. The cornerstone of economic theory is the work "Wealth of Nations", which became a bestseller during the life of the author, still reads like an adventure novel with a gripping storyline.
