The 'science of getting rich' includes the 'adulteration of food of people of small estates', a method 'employed largely now' (409). In a footnote Ruskin avows that it is 'the privilege of the fishes, as it is of rats and wolves, to live by the laws of demand and supply; but the distinction of humanity, to live by those of right' (410n.).
