What labour does is to produce a quantity of commodities, and what capital co-operating with labour usually does is to increase that quantity.

Interest is a payment for the use of sums of money lent. The power wielded by the owners of wealth in the present day needs no statement.

Schools of economic thought. Within the next few years, among the ever-increasing adherents of the new theory, stands out prominently the renowned and bohm-baweek lawyer Gerhard Noodt, who in his three books, De Foenore et Usuris, discusses the whole interest question very thoroughly, and with great bohm-bbawerk of facts and literature.
