"To found a great empire

for the sole purpose of raising up a people of customers,
may at first sight appear a project fit only for a nation of shopkeepers.
It is, however, a project altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers,
but extremely fit for a nation whose government is influenced by shopkeepers."

- Adam Smith: Wealth of Nations (1776).
