The rise or fall of wages is common to all states of society,
whether it be the stationary, the advancing,
or the retrograde state.
- David Ricardo

 

The facility of obtaining food is beneficial in two
ways to the owners of capital,
it at the same time raises profits and increases the
amount of consumable commodities.
- David Ricardo

A rise in wages, from an alteration in the value of money,
produces a general effect on price, and for that reason
it produces no real effect whatever on profits.
- David Ricardo

affect commodities produced with machinery quickly consumed,
and commodities produced with machinery slowly consumed.

The proportions, too, in which the capital that is to support labour,
and the capital that is invested in tools,
machinery and buildings, may be variously combined.
- David Ricardo

Gold and silver, like other commodities,
have an intrinsic value, which is not arbitrary,
but is dependent on their scarcity, the quantity of
labour bestowed in procuring them,
and the value of the capital employed in the mines which produce them.
- David Ricardo

Profits might also increase, because improvements might
take place in agriculture,
or in the implements of husbandry, which would augment
the produce with the same cost of production.
- David Ricardo

In the same manner if any nation wasted part of its wealth,
or lost part of its trade, it could not retain the
same quantity of circulating medium which it before possessed.
- David Ricardo

Again two manufacturers may employ the same amount of fixed,
and the same amount of circulating capital;
but the durability of their fixed capitals may be very unequal.
- David Ricardo

As the revenue of the farmer is realized in raw produce,
or in the value of raw produce, he is interested,
as well as the landlord, in its high exchangeable value,
but a low price of produce may be compensated to him
by a great additional quantity.
- David Ricardo

By far the greatest part of those goods which are the objects of desire,
are procured by labour; and they may be multiplied,
not in one country alone, but in many,
almost without any assignable limit,
if we are disposed to bestow the labour necessary to obtain them.
- David Ricardo

It is not by the absolute quantity of produce obtained by either class,
that we can correctly judge of the rate of profit,
rent, and wages, but by the quantity of labour required to obtain that produce.
- David Ricardo

If then the prosperity of the commercial classes,
will most certainly lead to accumulation of capital,
and the encouragement of productive industry;
these can by no means be so surely obtained as by a
fall in the price of corn.
- David Ricardo

A rise of wages from this cause will,
indeed, be invariably accompanied by a rise in the price of commodities;
but in such cases,
it will be found that labour and all commodities have
not varied in regard to each other,
and that the variation has been confined to money.
- David Ricardo

If we were left to ourselves, unfettered by legislative enactments,
we should gradually withdraw our capital from the cultivation of such lands,
and import the produce which is at present raised upon them.
- David Ricardo

After all the fertile land in the immediate neighbourhood
of the first settlers were cultivated,
if capital and population increased,
more food would be required,
and it could only be procured from land not so advantageously situated.
- David Ricardo

Whenever, then, the usual and ordinary rate of the
profits of agricultural stock,
and all the outgoings belonging to the cultivation of land,
are together equal to the value of the whole produce,
there can be no rent.
- David Ricardo

In comparing therefore the value of the same commodity,
at different periods of time, the consideration of
the comparative skill and intensity of labour,
required for that particular commodity,
needs scarcely to be attended to, as it operates equally at both periods.
- David Ricardo

If the quantity of labour realized in commodities,
regulate their exchangeable value, every increase of
the quantity of labour must augment the value of that
commodity on which it is exercised,
as every diminution must lower it.
- David Ricardo

During the period of capital moving from one employment to another,
the profits on that to which capital is flowing will be relatively high,
but will continue so no longer than till the requisite capital is obtained.
- David Ricardo

If a commodity were in no way useful,
- in other words, if it could in no way contribute to our gratification,
- it would be destitute of exchangeable value,
however scarce it might be, or whatever quantity of
labour might be necessary to procure it.
- David Ricardo

In stating the principles which regulate exchangeable value and price,
we should carefully distinguish between those variations
which belong to the commodity itself,
and those which are occasioned by a variation in the
medium in which value is estimated,
or price expressed.
- David Ricardo

If the demand for home commodities should be diminished,
because of the fall of rent on the part of the landlords,
it will be increased in a far greater degree by the
increased opulence of the commercial classes.
- David Ricardo

Gold and silver are no doubt subject to fluctuations,
from the discovery of new and more abundant mines;
but such discoveries are rare,
and their effects, though powerful, are limited to
periods of comparatively short duration.
- David Ricardo

If we have no peace,
it is because we have forgotten
that we belong to each other.
- Mother Teresa PHOTO

See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil.
- Japanese pictorial maxim (the Three Wise Monkeys) PHOTO

Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences.
No one can eliminate prejudices -
just recognize them.
- Edward R. Murrow PHOTO

A good traveler has no fixed plans,
and is not intent on arriving.

unless it agrees with your own reason
and your own common sense.
- The Buddha

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.
Demanding that life meet our expectations
is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.
Life is a game with no rules.
Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions.
Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Travelers, there is no path.

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe
