This wide-ranging collection looks at history through the lens of wealth and trade with a focus on economics in the widest sense, including political science, history, philosophy, sociology, and special collections on banking, finance, transportation and manufacturing. The Making of the Modern World: Part I: The Goldsmiths'-Kress Collection, 1450-1850 includes:

- Major writings of many economists. The Making of the Modern World has multiple editions of the major works of many economists.

In addition to comprehensive coverage of major authors and their seminal works, The Making of Modern World also includes contemporary debates and counterpoints to these emerging theories of modern economy.
