It is not the actual greatness of national wealth, but its continual increase, which occasions a rise in the wages of labour... - Adam Smith Quotes

Quote:It is not the actual greatness of national wealth, but its continual increase, which occasions a rise in the wages of labour. It is not, accordingly, in the richest countries, but in the most thriving, or in those which are growing rich the fastest, that the wages of labour are highest. England is certainly, in the present times, a much richer country than any part of North America. The wages of labour, however, are much higher in North America than in any part of England. - Adam Smith Quotes
