I really liked the book, it was easy to read and understand. The last 3 or 4 chapters were boring to me, because it focused a lot in the economy part. Harika bir kitap.

The latter chapter, a A thorough examination of the transition from feudalism to capitalism. It makes the reality of our economic system plain. Highly recommend. Aug 08, Pedro rated it it was amazing. Amazing book! I've always loved history and read many books, but this one is most definitely the best I've ever read.
It is written in a clear and simple language and summarizes very well the journey of mankind and money. Although some might say the author has left wing tendencies, I wouldn't put it out that way.
It is important to consider that the book was written in the 's, a time when there was still a lot of misery in the capitalist world and the Soviet Union was still thriving. Now a d Amazing book! Now a days, the author probably would have a different opinion a approach to the issues. Futhermore, he is only pointing out and questioninig the strong grasp the economical elite has on power and how it is bad for the common people, what is still a problem to this day.
O autor diz que "Este livro tem um duplo objetivo. Indico a todo mundo que queira entender mais da sociedade em que vivemos mas, se preparem para passar muita raiva percebendo como as coisas mudaram pouco Jun 30, Liane Buck rated it it was amazing Shelves: spiritual-transcendence , history , anthropology.
The Story of the Wealth of Nations is an eye opener for those that want to understand the underlying dynamics that drive our society. Leo Huberman offers us a detailed analysis of the thought processes behind the major human history shifts that brought us on where we are as a modern society. Personally, this book was of pivotal importance for broadening my understanding of human dynamics, their desires, Idealism, and their greed.

This book is a classic when it comes to the study of Economic History. The author makes us travel through time while he explains the various economic systems and their transitions.
Since it was written over the impact of The Great Depression, it is quite critical of capitalism and its contradictions. I don't necessarily share his views in this particular subject. The author's enthusiasm about comunism and the USSR also sounds dated and profoundly mistaken, but let's not forget this was the fee This book is a classic when it comes to the study of Economic History. The author's enthusiasm about comunism and the USSR also sounds dated and profoundly mistaken, but let's not forget this was the feeling of an era, not very far from ours.
Above all, this book is a historical document of great importance. The book takes us through diffrent periods of history and shows us what drives the development and what groups that thrives. Despite being from the book feels fairly modern apart from the authors faith in the planned economics of the USSR. Well worth a read, mostly because it helps you understand history better and that development just did not drop down as great ideas or by pure luck.
Jul 15, Harika Sekmen added it. Mar 26, Varad Deshmukh rated it really liked it. An excellent insight into the history of economics. Though Huberman did not foresee the death of Russian revolution by Stalin et al, he certainly goes on to show that the free-market liberal economics eventually is a precursor of the monopolistic crony capitalism we all so hate.
It should, to a certain extent give a rough idea of how economic policies work. Dec 04, Bruno Teixeira rated it liked it.
It's a very interesting book but more as an overall view of history than a systematic approach. I would recomend it for anyone with a basic knowledge wanting to learn more. For those who are always familiar with history, it doesn't add anything new, but even so it's a pleaseant reading. Huberman is a good writer and he is able to sustain your focus until the very last page. Jan 16, Broke rated it really liked it. The book provides a fairly good account of how economic systems evolved over time, especially in Europe.
The chronology is enough to give you a basic historical understanding and it can be considered as an introduction to those interested in the field of economics. While it can get a little boring in the middle, it's still worth a shot. Readers also enjoyed. About Leo Huberman. Leo Huberman. Books by Leo Huberman.
