Adam Smith
printer friendly version
To found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising up
a people of customers, may at first sight appear a project fit
only for a nation of shopkeepers. It is, however, a project
altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers; but extremely
fit for a nation that is governed by shopkeepers.

("Wealth of Nations")
