Making money out of money – Charles Handy

Making money out of money I — can I read you a quote that Adam Smith made 250 years ago, which will always please me? He said, “A profitably speculation is presented as a public good because growth will stimulate demand and everywhere diffuse comfort and improvement. No patriot or man of feeling could therefore oppose it. But the nature of this growth, in opposition, for example, to older ideas such as cultivation, is that it is at once undirected and infinitely self-generating in the endless demand for all the useless things in the world.”
“Capitalism is a very exhausting business, which tires people out.”
