The Wealth of Nations

The Wealth of Nations was published 9 March 1776, during the Scottish Enlightenment and the Scottish Agricultural Revolution. It influenced a number of authors and economists, as well as governments and organizations. For example, Alexander Hamilton was influenced in part by The Wealth of Nations to write his Report on Manufactures, in which he argued against many of Smith’s policies. Interestingly, Hamilton based much of this report on the ideas of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, and it was, in part, Colbert’s ideas that Smith responded to with The Wealth of Nations. Many other authors were influenced by the book and used it as a starting point in their own work, including Jean-Baptiste Say, David Ricardo, Thomas Malthus and, later, Ludwig von Mises. The Russian national poet Aleksandr Pushkin refers to The Wealth of Nations in his 1833 verse-novel Eugene Onegin.

Why do you think Trump was consistently referred to as a “dictator” or “tyrant” etc by the media and others  throughout his presidency ? Despite having not taken the United States to war like many of his predecessors? πŸ€” 

Do you think that much of it had to do with how “tactlessly” he conducted himself or do you think that he was often targeted because he was simply nothing like all of the others, thus garnering him hate along the way ? 

Does it matter that he didn’t take the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ to war or are all or the vast majority of the wars that we engage in necessary and warranted ?πŸ‘‡Feel free to reply below πŸ‘‡All comments are welcome πŸ‘‡
