Mint Channel iii

more than anything in the world
I want money
gold, currency, salt
more than Mansa Musa of Mali

don’t you see? the demand for money
can only be limited by your means as the purchaser
and there’ll always be present a desire in the consumer
for as much money as can be got
contrary to the demand for other things which is always limited

and yet, consumption remains the great end and goal of all human effort, no?

consumption yes
but the creation of capital too
you see, profits don’t always rise with progress
in fact, they often don’t
and if you apply thought to reality you’d discover
that land property which we peg at a level
in order to measure wealth
is originally a gift of nature
belonging to no one man
but capital however, is the product of human effort

ah, and a great possession indeed!

  1. Those who bemoan the relative sluggishness in stocks, forget that it is effort that creates wealth.

    Perhaps. But it’s not of much value when you need someone to talk to or help
