Argus and Socrates seem to have
quite a time over the idea that money
is a measure of values. If they will
stop and rest it will be a relief. Value
is measured by the mind of mnn, coup
ling his desire for an artijle with the re
sult of the supply and demand for that
article, and represented by a substance
called money. For instance a man is
in need of an article valued at a dollar
If his need causes him to consider the
article worth the price, the value to him
is measured by his mind coupled with
his desire or necessity and not money.
A measure of anything is a thing that
will contain quantity or indicate the
lengih, breadth or thickness of any
thing, which it is plain to be seen mon
ey cannot do.
