Adam Smith
note - of papers
expelling cash controverted.

It is an opinion advanced that appears to be entertained by Adam Smith, but
rather taken for granted assumed than proved, that every
£100 introduced into the currency in the shape of paper
must have the effecting of expelling so much cash.
The conclusion does not seem just in theory, nor
does it accord with such experience, as far as
experience in this subject has been brought to light.
Curious in itself, it is a question not worth discussing
for the present purpose. Whether the quantity
of wealth in all shapes receives an increase
or undergoes a defalcation within in the compass of a given period is
a question of real moment. Whether that portion of
it which happens to be in the shape of gold or silver
receives an increase or undergoes a defalcation within
the same period, the quantity of wealth remaining
all the while unvaried, is a question of no account not worth considering
If it is sent out of the country by merchants it is not sent out
for nothing, nor without profit: and whether the profit
made be made upon a thousand pounds worth
of gold and silver, or a thousand pounds worth of any
thing else is a matter of entire great indifference. If
the quantity of gold and silver were the sole index of the quantity
of wealth of all sorts, it would be worth attending to in
that view. But the quantity of wealth of all sorts have
has other indexes indexes more instructive

The question of real importance is - will the
increase addition thus supposed be the be made to the quantum amount of
the currency in circulation be attended in any and what
proportion with an addition to the quantity of wealth of
