This section contains Finance And Economics Quotes

Economics is a theoretical science and as such abstains from any judgement of value. It is not its task to tell people what ends they should aim at. It is a science of the means to be applied for attainment of ends chosen, not, to be sure, a science of the choosing of ends. Ultimate decisions, the valuations and the choosing of ends, are beyond the scope of any science. Science never tells a man how he should act; it merely shows how a man must act if he wants to attain definite ends. (Quote by - Ludwig Von Mises)

Not understanding the process of a spontaneously-ordered economy goes hand-in-hand with not understanding the creation of resources and wealth. And when a person does not understand the creation of resources and wealth, the only intellectual alternative is to believe that increasing wealth must be at the cost of someone else.

Economics is not about things and tangible material objects; it is about men, their meanings and actions. (Quote by - Ludwig Von Mises)

Greater consumption due to increase in population and growth of income heightens scarcity and induces price run-ups. A higher price represents an opportunity that leads inventors and businesspeople to seek new ways to satisfy the shortages. Some fail, at cost to themselves. A few succeed, and the final result is that we end up better off than if the original shortage problems had never arisen. That is, we need our problems, though this does not imply that we should purposely create additional problems for ourselves. (Quote by - Julian Simon)

Worry about being better; bigger will take care of itself. Think one customer at a time and take care of each one the best way you can. (Quote by - Gary Comer)

Whoever originated the cliche that money is the root of all evil knew hardly anything about the nature of evil and very little about human beings. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)
