NOTE ON AMASRA for Locke believed that God commanded individuals to labor; and since no one could labor hard enough to gain ownership of all land, each should be satisfied with a moderate portion. Adam SMITH (1723 90) and David RICARDO (1772 1823), the founders of classical economics, were concerned with understanding how the capitalist economic system worked and how it affected the wealth of a nation as a whole. Smith believed that all the different elements of the economic system were connected. The capitalist paid WAGES to the worker, who in turn paid rent to the landlord. The circle was completed when both the worker and the landlord purchased various GOODS from the capitalist. The worker naturally wanted to make the highest wage possible but was prevented from doing so by both the capitalist and the landlord who were after the highest profits possible. Unlike Locke, Smith argued that the worker did not own all that he or she produced because the capitalist who owned the place of production, the machinery, and raw materials with which goods were produced also owned a share in the finished product.
