“GRAB ALL THE MONEY YOU POSSIBLY CAN”: Jacob H. Schiff

Schiff

That’s how  the Atlanta Constitution summarizes the message of Mr. Schiff, a prominent New York banker, in testimony before the House “money trust” committee:

Mr. Schiff declared that individuals should be allowed to exert their utmost efforts to concentrate fortunes and power, until the “law of nature caused the attempted monopoly to fail of its own weight.”

Mr. Schiff might benefit from an effort to craft a shorter slogan.  Perhaps something like: “Greed is good.”
