A Quote of Francis Hackett

프랜시스 해킷의 다음 인용문은 여러 군데서 보이지만 그 인용의 원출처는 정확하지 않다. 새뮤얼슨이 그의 《경제학 The Economics》에서 인용한 것을 재인용하는 사례가 대부분이다.

I believe in materialism. I believe in all the proceeds of a healthy materialism--good cooking, dry houses, dry feet, sewers, drain pipes, hot water, baths, electric lights, automobiles, good roads, bright streets, long vacations away from the village pump, new ideas, fast horses, swift conversation, theaters, operas, orchestras, bands--I believe in them all for everybody. The man who dies without knowing these things may be as exquisite as a saint, and as rich as poet; but it is in spite of, not because of, his deprivation.

I believe an appropriate point of departure into my assignment would be to define economic forces, institutional forces, and what constitutes our land policy.

Economic forces will be interpreted to mean the influences of materialistic wants or desires of individuals and society upon actions and society. Much has been said against treating man as economic machine, a creature with no motives or purposes other than what the economic textbeeoks say he has. But, can we assert that such motivations of man are not important, that people do not prefer more of the scarce items used in our living to less, or than our actions are influenced only by other purposes? Perhaps money income, property, or other means to material well-being are also means to such higher-level purposes as happines, satisfaction, prestige, or social status, but, if so, materialism may be a necessary condition for attending these high-level purposes.[주2] Francis Hackett, an Irishman, expresses the role of materialism(economics) as follows:
I believe in materialism. I believe in all the proceeds of a healthy materialism--good cooking, dry houses, dry feet, sewers, drain pipes, hot water, baths, electric lights, automobiles, good roads, bright streets, long vacations away from the village pump, new ideas, fast horses, swift conversation, theaters, operas, orchestras, bands--I believe in them all for everybody. The man who dies without knowing these things may be as exquisite as a saint, and as rich as poet; but it is in spite of, not because of, his deprivation.[주3]
