Economist - 1800 A.D.

1. The Laissez-Faire Economists
     told everybody
     that competition
     is the life of trade
     and that it is a case
     of survival of the fittest.

2. So since 1800
     looking for markets
     has engaged men's activities.

3. And since trade follows the flag
     industrial nations
     have also become
     imperialist nations.

4. The fight for markets
     between two industrial nations,
     England and Germany,
     was the main cause 
     of the World War.
