Quote of the Week: Ezra Pound, “An Introduction to the Economic Nature of the United States”

Ezra-Pound-venice square

Man has been reduced not even to a digestive tube, but to a bag of money that gradually is losing its value. This cycle has lasted three centuries; from the arrival of the pilgrims who sought freedom of worship, to the Cult of Lucre dominating today. This is both economic history and the history of a spiritual decadence.

▪ Ezra Pound, “An Introduction to the Economic Nature of the United States” Selected Prose 1909-1965 (Faber and Faber, 1973) extract from page 148.
