The rise of profit operates like compound interest. Our merchants and master-manufacturers complain much of the bad effects of high wages in raising the price, and thereby lessening the sale of their goods both at home and abroad. They say nothing concerning the bad effects of high profits. They are silent with regard to the pernicious effects of their own gains. They complain only of those of other people.
Mai mulţi oameni ar trebui să citească/recitească Wealth of Nations. Am avea mai puţine discuţii cretine la televizor sau pe net.
