Aspiring economist major here and I began reading Smith's "Wealth of Nations" today and, even a few pages in, do not completely understand the difference between the three due to the rather opaque wordings. I believe skill means the ability to produce goods; dexterity the expertise or efficiency to produce goods; and judgement to mean the prudence/wisdom to use or sell those goods. I am also unable to find good resources for understanding "WoN" online, so recommendations are also welcome. Thank you.
