Abstract
Ch.
Circulatg

1920 Note?
It is not necessary
that any increase of
money and consequent
rise of prices should
be prevented beyond
what would owe its
rise to this particular
measure.

In proposing the quantity of money of all sorts
already in circulation as the standard of reference
in respect of the quantity to be suffered to exist
after and in consequence of the introduction of the
proposed paper, I would not be understood to
mark out for prohibition that degree of extension which the
mass in question would have received in the natural
course of things, and laying out of the
case the effect produced degree of extension that unless thus obviated
prevented in the manner proposed might have resulted
from the particular operation of the proposed
measure. The true proper object of endeavour is not
— not absolutely to prevent all rise of prices - since
to prevent that might be to prevent that increase
of opulence and consequent national security
of which the in a certain degree the rise of prices seems to be
one inseparable accompaniment. but only that
degree of rise, which had it not been for the preventive
precautions in question might have
been the exclusive result of the proposed measure.
might have had the proposed measure
for its sole official cause.
