Murray N. Rothbard
“We have seen in detail above that the ultimate earnings of factors go to the owners of labor and of ground land and, as interest, to capitalists. If land can be capitalized, does this not mean that land and capital goods are “really the same thing” after all? The answer to the latter question is No.25It is still emphatically true that the earnings of basic land factors are ultimate and irreducible, as are labor earnings, while capital goods have to be constantly produced and reproduced, and therefore their earnings are always reducible to the earnings of ground land, labor, and time.”
Murray N. Rothbard, Man, Economy, and State / Power and Market: Government and Economy

Mrs. Tuttle will not pay the rent because she is not living here. Sincerely, Marian Griswold”
