The book The Wealth of Romania, published by Nicolae D. Xenopol in 1916, has been translated by a team of teachers from the Bucharest University of Economic Studies on the initiative of professor Ion Vorovenci, passionately fond of the knowledge of the institution and its founders.
The economist and politician Nicolae Xenopol gives a brief summary of the evolution of the Romanian economy in the period 1829-1916. Remaining almost unknown to the general public as a result of the untimely death of the author and of the events that have marked Romania's history; the book has appeared on the occasion of the celebration of a centenary of existence of the Bucharest University of Economic Studies and constitutes a remarkable act of culture of recognition of our great economists.
One may only wonder working through its content, many of the ideas expressed by Nicolae Xenopol, founder of the Academy of High Commercial and Industrial Studies, being valid even today. It can be an important source of documentation for both economists and politicians of Romania, as well as for lovers of history.
