Bow, bow, ye lower middle classes! Bow, bow, ye tradesmen, bow ye masses!
The sneaking arts of underling tradesmen are thus erected into political maxims for the conduct of a great empire; for it is the most underling tradesmen only who make it a rule to employ chiefly their own customers. A great trader purchases his good always where they are cheapest and best, without regard to any little interest of this kind.Adam Smith
Let me have no lying; it becomes none but tradesmen.william shakespeare
