עמוד 39 - ... there are few states in which there is not a constant effort in the population to increase beyond the means of subsistence. This constant effort as constantly tends to subject the lower classes of society to distress, and to prevent any great permanent melioration of their condition.
עמוד 103 - ... and a greater to the class of capitalists, than had been given before. We might find, for example, that though the absolute quantity of commodities had been doubled, they were the produce of precisely the former quantity of labour.

עמוד 17 - The mine worked by England is the general market of the world : the miners are those who produce those commodities by the exportation of which the precious metals are obtained...
עמוד 103 - Wages are to be estimated by their real value, viz. by the quantity of labour and capital employed in producing them, and not by their nominal value either in coats, hats, money, or corn.

In our early history famines, and pestilences the consequences of famine, constantly recur. At present, though our numbers are trebled and quadrupled, they are unheard of.
עמוד 102 - It is according to the division of the whole produce of the land of any particular farm, between the three classes, of landlord, capitalist, and laborer, that we are to judge of the rise or fall of rent, profit, and wages...
עמוד 104 - ... Under the circumstances I have just supposed, commodities would have fallen to half their former value, and if money had not varied, to half their former price also.
