The rest was a subjec of practice and ever-faster fingers until some of us were " reading " as fast as we could turn the pages.The texts for class were, one suspects, Ms. Wood 's efforts to ake thi world a etter place.

Lastly I returned to the old, much more pleasant ways of reading and, in time, even reread Marx 's great hero, Adam Smith ... while on the beach in Michigan and over several month.

The remaining 1/8 of the memoir, even, is worth fighting through the rest for.

" The Wealth of Nations " is he ook that changed greed to a virtue instead of a sin.

But man Adam Smith says it is OK to do whatever is necessary to obtain wealth.

Adam Smith says it is th ba thing to allow your instinct toward selfishness to rule your life.

In turning greed to virtue, Adam Smith has created an economic system that more accurately has been called " Social Darwinism ".

he Bible and every civilized religion in he world disagree, saying greed is a sin because the individual chooses to be greedy even though he/she knows it will cause great shortages of money among the meek and powerless.Capitalism therefore is a sin, not an acceptable economic system.

But right now the middleclass is disappearing in the USA ( as it has in all empires), leaving only the few monsters at the top and everyone else in poverty.Forgive me for reading and for using my mind to agree or disagree with the journalis.

I recommend reading this admittedly fascinating book because it is an xplanation of why Rome, Great Britian, the Ottoman Empire, et al, in the end collapsed because of greed made a virtue.
