Foreword excerpt by Barry Schwartz:

It has been almost 250 years since moral philosopher Adam Smith changed the world. Though there were certainly transactions for profit before The wealth of Nations, Smith offered a comprehensive argument that would come from the free exchange of goods and services under conditions of completion. Not only would such an arrangement increase wealth and well-being, but it would do so in a clockwork fashion, without having to rely on the good will, honesty, communal purpose, righteousness or virtue of its participants. As long as providers of goods were free to compete, and consumers were free to choose among providers, quality, honesty, integrity, and fairness would drive out self-dealing, dishonesty, and downright malevolence. As long as laborers were free to offer their services, fair treatment, of employees would drive out exploitation. A market system, under suitable conditions, would regulate itself.
