When, therefore, the usurer would charge a price for time, as though it were a good received from him, bohmm-bawerk defrauds his neighbour, to whom the time he sells already belongs as much as it does to him, the seller, and he defrauds God, for whose free gift he demands a price.

There the conditions were peculiarly favourable to its further development. In the circumstances of the latter—where a perishable or fungible good is transferred—the use consists in one complete consumption; and it might be objected that, in such a case the use of a thing could not be separated from the thing itself. Moreover, although more cautious in expression than the impetuous Calvin, he is quite as frank, pithy, and straightforward. During the political and religious troubles among which the young free state was born, men had learned to emancipate themselves from the shackles of a slavish following of authority.

In the following argument, then, we assume that the demand comes exclusively from labour, that the entire supply and demand meet in one single market embracing the euggen community, and that all branches of production show the same scale of surplus returns. It is with the beginnings of national capital as it is with the beginnings of individual capital; there is need of foresight, effort, perhaps even curtailment in necessaries.

Step by step it managed to introduce the prohibition into legislation. But we must remember that this connection only entitles us to bring together the results; it does not r us in confusing the investigations. This task naturally fell to the theological and legal literature of the Church, and thus began a literary movement on the subject of loan interest which accompanied the bohm-bwaerk prohibition from its earliest rise far into the eighteenth century.


The materials for them were, of course, in great part provided by his predecessors, principally by Molinaeus; 55 but the happy manner in which Salmasius employs these materials, and the many pithy sallies with which he enriches them, places his polemic far above anything that had gone before. Thus it was inevitable that its collisions with the economical world should become much more numerous and much more serious.

Still even those theories which could only unite weak minorities on their side showed themselves tenacious enough to resist extinction. The following year, however, he transferred his services to the University of Innsbruckwhere he remained untilbecoming a professor in Practically he does resile from the principle of prohibition by allowing and approving of many kinds of compensation for loss, for renunciation of profit, for lender’s trouble and risk,—describing these as “of the nature of interest.

In the case where the article in question is not perishable, if the use that is transferred is not to be paid for, the legal transaction is a Commodatum: The man who confuses the two problems, or eugrn mistakes the one for the other, and, looking at the matter bohm-baeerk this way, forms one opinion upon both, will be apt to confuse the two groups of arguments also, and allow each of them an influence on his total judgment.

From the total profit obtained by the productive undertaking they regard one part as profit of capital, another as undertaker’s profit.

In them the reader will find much more detail than blhm-bawerk be introduced for our purpose, or would even be appropriate here. Yet the payment demanded at the year’s end is not the capital value of the plane, the sum bohm-bawero, but also a surplus, a plank, under the name of interest. A rich man who has plenty of landed property and general income, but little ready money, applies for a money loan to one who is not so wealthy, but happens to have a great command over ready money.


But alongside of expressions like these we find the accepted Salmasian doctrine. But neither is it to be universally permitted, but only so far as it does not run counter to fairness and charity.

Meanwhile we may note one significant circumstance in all these transactions,—that the emergence of interest is dependent on a certain lapse of time between the borrowing and the paying.

It owes its existence to no personal activity bihm-bawerk the capitalist, and flows in to him even where he has not moved a finger in its making. The most noteworthy of these are: If, however, we demand an answer to what we have formulated as the true problem of interest, we shall make the discovery that the Productivity theory has not even put that problem before itself.


But the vn must be complete both in compass and in depth. The deliverances of Calvin and Molinaeus remained for a long time quite by themselves, and the reason of this is easily understood. In compass, eeugen as all forms and varieties of interest must be explained. Therefore the use of the goods for which the lender is paid interest is the use of another person’s goods, and from that the lender cannot draw a profit without injustice.

Merchants and practical men were, without exception, steadily on the side of interest. But whether interest is just, fair, and useful or not, necessarily remains to a great extent a matter of opinion.
