Famous quotes containing the word economist:

    As a preacher, I should be prompted to tell men, not so much how to get their wheat bread cheaper, as of the bread of life compared with which that is bran. Let a man only taste these loaves, and he becomes a skillful economist at once.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
