"Money is not the root of all evil"

"What is root of money. Money is a tool of exchange, which cant exist untill there are ggods produced and men able to produce them.Money is the meterial shape of the principle that the men who wish to deal with one another must must deal by trade and give value for is not the tool of the moochers, who claim our product by tears, or of the looters who take it from us by force.Money is made possible only by the menwho produce.Is this what we consider root of evil?

When we accept money in payment for our effort, we do so only on the convictionthat we will exchange it for the product of the effort of others. it is not the moochers or looters who give value to money. Not an occean of tears nor all the guns in the worlds can transform this piece of paper in our wallet into the bread we will need to survive tomorrow.These piceses of paper which should have been gold, are a token of honour--our claim upon the energy of the men who produce.Our wallet is statement of hope that the somewhere in the world around us there are men who will not default on the moral principle which is the root of this what we consider root of evil.

have we ever looked into the root of production?Let us take a look at the electric generator and dare tell ourselve that it was created by the musculer efforts or unthinking bruts-- and we shall know that man's mind is the root of all the goods produced and of all the wealth that have ever existed on earth.

We sometime say that money is made at the expense of the weak? what strength do we mean?Its not the strength of the guns and muscles. Wealth is the product of man's capacity to think.Then is money made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who didnt invent it?Is money made by the intelligent at the expense of the fools?By the ambitious at the expense of the lazy?Money is made before it can be looted or mooched--made by effort of every honest men, each to the extent of his ability. An honest man is one who knows that he cant consume more than he has produced.

To trade by means of money is the code of the men of good will. Money rest on the axiom that the every men is the owner of his mind and effort. money allows no power to prescribe the value of our effort except the volunntary choice of the man who is willing to trade us his effort in return. Money demands that we sell not our weakness to men's stupidity, but our talent to their reason.Money is the code of existence.Is this what we consider evil?"

Quality of quality

Its really amazing to realize that 'quality' is also qualitative.That is, an excelent quality to some frame of reference may not be an excelent for some other frame of reference.For a country like India some thing of best quality could be of inferier quality to the same thing of bad quality in America.

Standerd of life really plays an important role in determining quality. For a begger the term 'quality' does not have any importance as long as his necessities are being met.A country where goods to be exported are marked as 'Export Quality' and are of superier quality than the same product consumed in localy, is found to be a developeing one, whereas such distinction is not made in developed country.

Also if we think in terms of socio-economic way, in a social economy, Quality of quality tends to degrade due to lack of competition from other rivalaries, causing monopolization the market and producing poor quality and people have no chouce but to accept it, however in an open market, where competition is stiff, winner is often decided by the producer of best quality goods.

A Quality thinking to deliver best whatever we deliver can write a mission statement for a company, but to actually have a best quality, we should rather have a thinking of 'Accepting best to whatever we are supposed to get' and realizing it by heart.
