  4. 4. “The judicious operations ofbanking, by providing, if I maybe allowed so violent ametaphor, a sort of wagon-waythrough the air, enable thecountry to convert, as it were, agreat part of its highways intogood pasture and corn fields, andthereby to increase veryconsiderably the annualproduce of its land and labour.”
  5. 5. RSRDReserves(MV)*PaymentsReserve and Spending Equilibriumunder Free Banking
  6. 6. “The commerce and industry of thecountry, however, it must beacknowledged, though they may besomewhat augmented, cannot bealtogether so secure, when they arethus, as it were, suspended uponthe Daedalian wings of papermoney, as when they travel aboutupon the solid ground of gold andsilver.”

  8. 8. I have tediously insisted that thenatural system of banking is thatof many banks keeping their owncash reserve, with the penalty offailure before them if they neglectit. I have shown that our system isthat of a single bank keeping thewhole reserve under no effectualpenalty of failure. And yet Ipropose to retain that system, andonly attempt to mend and palliateit.
  9. 9. I can only reply that I propose toretain this system because I amquite sure that it is of no manner ofuse proposing to alter it... Youmight as well, or better, try to alterthe English monarchy andsubstitute a republic, as to alter thepresent constitution of the Englishmoney market, founded on theBank of England, and substitute forit a system in which each bank shallkeep its own reserve.
