That wacky speculating Marx!

"English stocks... are springing up like mushrooms this year... forced up to a quite unreasonable level and then, for most part, collapse. In this way, I have made over 400 pounds... [Speculating] makes small demands on one's time, and it's worthwhile running some risk in order to relieve the enemy of his money."

- Karl Marx (German Social Philosopher and Revolutionary, 1818-1883, in an 1864 letter to his uncle)

Marx's demise in the lap of poverty testifies to the skill with which he managed to relieve the enemy of his money.
