Voltaire on commerce
“Take a view of the Royal Exchange in London, a place more venerable than many courts of justice, where the representatives of all nations meet for the benefit of mankind. There the Jew, the Mahometan, and the Christian transact together as tho’ they all profess’d the same religion, and give the name of Infidel to none but bankrupts.”
Voltaire [Francois-Marie Arouet] (1694-1778) in his Letters concerning the English Nation , ed. with an introduction by Nicholas Cronk (1994), 30.
