Wealth of Nations
The Wealth of Nations, by Adam Smith, was published on March 9, 1776 during the Scottish Enlightenment and the Scottish Agricultural Revolution.
Thomas Jefferson got his ideas from Adam Smith's book "The Wealth of Nations." He favored a society with ruling by the people. He wanted strong state governments, emphasis on agriculture, and a strict interpretation of the constitution. He spoke for both the democrats and republicans.
