In his monumental work, An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith captured the spirit of the new industrial and commercial system and presented its theoretical defense . in a form which dominated the thought of the most influential writers of political economy for the greater part of the next century. In fact, the principles which Smith formulated retained their hegemony until the Jevonian, marginalist revolution of the 1870s.
