What prudent merchant will hazard his fortunes in any new branch of commerce when he knows not but that his plans may be rendered unlawful before they can be executed?

Rhetorical question there is, but still I think the answer does exist.

The Senate
Independent Journal
Wednesday, February 27, 1788
[James Madison]

To the People of the State of New York:


"In another point of view, great injury results from an unstable government. The want of confidence in the public councils damps every useful undertaking, the success and profit of which may depend on a continuance of existing arrangements. What prudent merchant will hazard his fortunes in any new branch of commerce when he knows not but that his plans may be rendered unlawful before they can be executed? What farmer or manufacturer will lay himself out for the encouragement given to any particular cultivation or establishment, when he can have no assurance that his preparatory labors and advances will not render him a victim to an inconstant government? In a word, no great improvement or laudable enterprise can go forward which requires the auspices of a steady system of national policy."

"Either the prudent merchant or the rich," whispered fortuneteller... There's choice.

Businesses take risk. I think that is why you win sometimes and lose some. Risk is the name of the game.

The question stems from the first statement:"In another point of view, great injury results from an unstable government."


Little in the way of business activity will be planned if people can't depend on the Government. When laws and regulations are enacted on a whim, distrust slows economic activity, and the whole population suffers.

Prudent? Investment banks selling derivatives and other junk? Not that, they knew there was no law to render their plans unlawful.
