Abstract

Labor is the source of all wealth, the economists assert. It is this, next to nature, which supplies it with the material it converts into wealth. But it is also infinitely more than this. It is the primary basic condition for all human existence, and this is to such an extent that, in a sense, we have to say that labor created man himself.
