Abstract

Ch XVI.

1 (b) continued
2. No incease of
labour being produced
but by incease of
money -

Another source of illusion was - the intimacy
of the connection between wealth, labour, and
money in the chain of causes and effects No
wealth but from labour: - no great labourer worth regarding
in this point of view, but from money.
What is it that calls la capacity of labour into
all but money? What is it that works stand
still for: but money? - what is it that sets
fresh works them a going again, but money?
What is it that sets fresh works a going, but
fresh money? - That there are works improvements
going on to such the amount
we see, is because there is so much money: - that
there are we see no more improvements going on than we
see, is because we have no more money than
what we have. What conclusion then more
natural - or to a first an exterior view more ,
than that with is , so far at least as augmentation
of wealth is concerned — money is that thing of
which there can not be too much.

All this however is but illusion. Quantity
of wealth in a country — quantity of real wealth
depends — not on the quantity of money, but on
the application of it. To what question soever
money is seen to be applied and in case in a
fresh stream, or in an increasing quantity, there
indeed it is seen to abound: but if it produces by such abundance
a clear addition to the mass of national wealth is really
produced, it is only by reason of any addition to the absolute
quantity of money in the country, but by reason of an addition to [+] [+] the quantity of which
an application tending
to add operating in addition
to the mass of real wealth
is thus made.
