NUMBER:159
AUTHOR:George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
QUOTATION:You have to choose (as a voter) between trusting to the natural stability of gold and the natural stability of the honesty and intelligence of the members of the Government. And, with due respect for these gentlemen, I advise you, as long as the Capitalist system lasts, to vote for gold.
ATTRIBUTION:GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, The Intelligent Woman’s Guide to Socialism and Capitalism, chapter 55, p. 263 (1928).

  In the “Foreword for American Readers” Shaw says, “Finally, I have been asked whether there are any intelligent women in America. There must be; for politically the men there are such futile gossips that the United States could not possibly carry on unless there were some sort of practical intelligence back of them. But I will let you into a secret which bears on this point. By this book I shall get at the American men through the American women” (p. xi).
SUBJECTS:Capitalism
WORKS:George Bernard Shaw Collection
