John Bates Clark Quotes and Sayings

I hope you find great value in these Quotes by John Bates Clark from my large collection of motivational and inspirational quotes and sayings.

When we say that the persistence of competition is ensured by fate,
we mean that individual freedom is so guaranteed.
The one thing to which fate binds us is liberty.
- John Bates Clark

If the adjustment made by a court can be accepted or not,
it will be refused whenever the men can gain more by continuing the strike,
with whatever of violence that involves.
- John Bates Clark

The market tends to pay as a wage what an individual laborer is worth.
But the case last studied suggests the question how
accurately the law operates in practice.
May it not be an honest law, but be so vitiated in
its working as to give a dishonest result?
- John Bates Clark

We cannot afford to have any large section of the business
world in doubt whether they have broken the laws or not,
and we cannot let the laws become a dead letter through vagueness.
In this view it is clear that an administrative commission
can render invaluable service.
- John Bates Clark

 

Dull would be the man who should merely tolerate this plan of social industry.
Weak would be the position of him who should take an
apologetic tone in defending it,
or present its claims in a merely negative way,
by exposing the evils and perils of the socialistic plan.
- John Bates Clark

The first issue to be settled is whether socialism
has a right to exist Are its allegations concerning
the present system true? Is industry proceeding on
a principle of fraud? I wish to test the power of recent
economic theory to give an exact answer to this question.
- John Bates Clark

If a man were living in isolation his income would
be literally his product.
Make him the monarch and owner of an island,
and the fruits that he raises and the clothing that he makes constitute,
in themselves, his income.
This ceases to be true when trading begins.
- John Bates Clark

Experience alone can give a final answer.
The knowledge gained in a few years by a commission
of the kind suggested would be worth more than volumes
of mere assertions and contradictions.
- John Bates Clark

In a recent decision of the Supreme Court,
not made, however, by the full court,
and concurred in by only four justices,
it was held that the seller of a patented mimeograph
could bind the purchaser to use only his ink in the machine,
though the ink was not patented.
- John Bates Clark

The decree of a coercive tribunal would not need to
conform to the true standard of wages,
the final productivity of social labor.
It would introduce into distribution a genuinely arbitrary element,
with a very large ultimate power to pervert the natural system.
- John Bates Clark

The limit is not as narrow as it might be.
I do not claim for this action, as it now goes on,
an ideal degree of efficiency.
What I do claim is that this type of competition already
reveals its nature and its ultimate power to hold seeming monopolies in check.
- John Bates Clark

A laborer no longer makes whole articles.
He receives raw materials, puts his touch on them,
and passes them to another worker in the series.
When the articles are quite finished they are carried
out of sight by currents of commercial exchange.
These currents are untraceable.
- John Bates Clark

Socialism appeals to better classes and has far more strength.
Attack the state and you excite feelings of loyalty
even among the disaffected classes;
but attack the industrial system and appeal to the state,
and you may have loyalty in your favor.
- John Bates Clark

- Martin Luther King, Jr. PHOTO
