A quote by Adam Smith on the importance of labor is the topic of this blog post.
“Labour was the first price, the original purchase – money that was paid for all things. It was not by gold or by silver, but by labour, that all wealth of the world was originally purchased.” Adam Smith
“This quote by Adam Smith is absolutely true as no wealth can be obtained without labor. Even gold and silver cannot be obtained except through the use of labor. The absolute truth of this quote cannot be denied by any thinking person. Without labor there would be no wealth yet so many people nowadays disdain the importance of labor. Adam Smith understood clearly that labor was in fact the original money although that is a fact that seems to be lost on many modern economists and many people that love to selectively quote him.” Stan Burman
