Adam Smith — Chapter I Breakdown

Why I am reading The Wealth of Nations

On the Division of Labour

Agriculture vs Manufacturing

Three Ways to Increase the Quantity of Production

To the increase of dexterity in every particular workman

To saving time which is commonly lost in passing from one species of work to another

To the invention of a great number of machines which facilitate and abridge labour, enabling one worker to do the work of many
