Homework Assignment: Smith


As I mentioned at the beginning of the quarter, there is a homework assignment for this part of the course. It will be due Friday, May 8th.

Estimate the ratio of national debt to national income for England at the time Smith was writing, using only information in The Wealth of Nations. You will not be able to find exact figures, but there is enough information to make a rough estimate. Compare it to the current figure for the U.S.
