It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who in stead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufactures, commerce, and other useful pursuits, make it an instrument to burden all the interchanges of property with their swindling profits, profits which are the price of no useful industry of theirs."
- Thomas Jefferson, Author of the united States Declaration of Independence
